Earlier this week, Blackfalds RCMP identified three young offender males involved in some recent cemetery vandalism.

The three turned themselves into the Blackfalds Detachment in the presence of their parents/guardians.

Blackfalds RCMP had responded to a complaint of vandalism at the Cemetery and found numerous flowers and vases damaged on scene.

Initially, it did not appear that any headstones were damaged in this occurrence.

It was later found that there was damage to lights and grave ornaments which were left behind by loved ones. The investigation had also revealed further damage to the cemetery cenotaph with broken pieces of granite slabs located.

As the three males are young offenders, their names will not be released.

No charges have been laid and the investigation is ongoing.
