Vandalism at Brantford cemetery

On the afternoon of Sunday, June 9, the Brantford Police Service responded to a vandalism complaint at Mount Hope Cemetery on Charing Cross Street.

Around 1 a.m. the police received a call from a concerned citizen reporting they had heard noises and voices coming from the cemetery.

Upon arriving at the cemetery, the police observed three tombstones which had been toppled.

The police currently have no suspects and are asking the community to help in whatever way they can to help catch the culprits.

This comes just two days after the police were called to John Wright Park on another vandalism report where a building had been defaced with black spray paint with the statement: BAN SMOKING NEAR PLAYGRONDS IS KILLING OUR CHILDREN!

Anyone with information regarding either cases of vandalism can contact the Brantford Police Service at 519-756-7050.
