Grave sites desecrated at Greenfield Cemetery

GREENFIELD — Greenfield Police Department is looking for the person or persons responsible for desecrating statues, crosses and other memorial religious items and flowers left to honor deceased family members at the Greenfield Cemetery.

According to City Manager Paul Wood, the vandalism occurred Nov. 16 between 10 and 11 a.m., and local officers responded immediately after being notified at about 2 p.m. that day.

“An extensive investigation and interviews were conducted,” Wood said in a news release.
