Kingston Police seek cemetery vandals

The Kingston Police Department is asking the public to help it find whoever’s responsible for two incidents of desecration at Wiltwyck Cemetery, one on June 17 and the other on Aug. 22. In both incidents, “numerous” headstones were tipped over, police said. “The section affected is an older section of the cemetery,” the KPD wrote on its Facebook page. “Many older and irreplaceable headstones were damaged/broken during these two incidents. The management of cemetery is in the process of having some of the stones returned to their original upright position but many of the older headstones were damaged and are not able to be repaired properly.”

Those with information are asked to call (845) 331-1671. Those wishing to remain anonymous can use the “Submit a Tip” app on the Kingston police Facebook page or leave an anonymous tip on our Kingston Police Tip Line at (845) 331-4499. All calls/information will be kept confidential.
