(From a report)

At least 50 gravestones were vandalized overnight Monday at the Holy Trinity Cemetery, according to Columbia Borough police.
Patrolman Matthew Leddy said some of the markers were completely destroyed.
"A lot occurred in the older section of the cemetery," he said. "There are some from the mid- to late 1800s damaged."
Police believe that several perpetrators were involved, considering some of the stones weigh at least half a ton.

Anyone with information on this incident should contact Columbia Borough Police at 684-7735.
