Montana sheriff's office investigates joyride at cemetery

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Montana sheriff's office is investigating an apparent "joyride" through a town cemetery

  

The Billings Gazette reports the Sheridan County Sheriff's Office shared on Facebook that somebody drove over most of the town's graves on Easter morning, April 1.

  

The Facebook post says suspects entered the Plentywood cemetery in a vehicle "and proceeded to take a series of 'joyrides' that covered most of the eastern half of the cemetery."

  

A resident notified the sheriff's office of the damaged graves.

  

Sheriff Heidi Williamson is encouraging people to call the office if they discover that their loved one's grave was damaged during the incident.

  

The extent of the damage to graves and headstones is not yet known due to fresh snow.
