Oregon City cemetery vandalized - 11/13/15
On 11-13-15 at 6:00 am, employees arrived at the Mountain View Cemetery located at 500 Hilda Street in Oregon City, to find broken windows, burnt flowers and toppled and broken grave stones.

They believe that the suspect or suspects entered the cemetery sometime after 5:00 pm on 11-12-15, likely by jumping the fence. Employees found broken windows, broken flower vases, burned plastic flowers left by mourners, and a heavy granite war memorial bench knocked to the ground. Water spigots were kicked over, and 31 headstones were damaged in the pioneer section of the cemetery, which is the burial site of Oregon City pioneers dating back to 1847. Some of the grave stones, including several of historical significance, are irreparable.

Employees have estimated the damage to be around $8000.00 to $10,000.00. The Mountain View Cemetery is offering a $500.00 reward for information leading to an arrest in this case. Anyone with information is urged to call the Oregon City Police Department tip line, at 503-496-1616. Callers may remain anonymous.
