Vandals Knock Over Headstones at Storrs Cemetery

Someone knocked over more than a dozen headstones at a 150-year-old cemetery in Storrs this week, cracking two of them and causing $3,000 in damage, according to the Storrs Cemetery Association.

Officials from the UConn Division of Public Safety said a volunteer who works at Old Storrs Cemetery called them around 7 p.m. Monday to report the vandalism.

Between 15 and 20 headstones were pushed over and two were cracked.

Police have not identified any suspects and said they have no reason to believe UConn students are involved.

They are stepping up patrols in the area in response to the vandalism.
