The Elmer Cemetery in northwest Hayes County, also known as the Antelope Cemetery, was recently the victim of vandalism.

A hole large enough to pass a soda can through it was shot in the cemetery sign. The lights for the sign and flag pole were also shot and broken off their stands. In total, approximately $1,000 of damage was done.

The cemetery, which is the final resting place for veterans and pioneers from the area, is managed by the American Veterans Post 14.

Loyd Christner states that the Hayes County Sheriff, Tom Dow, was notified of the damage. Christner goes on to say that members of the American Veterans group have offered a reward of $400 for information leading to the apprehension of the individual or individuals responsible for the damage at the cemetery.

If you have information which may lead to the apprehension of the individual or individuals responsible for the vandalism the American Veterans ask that you contact the Hayes County Sheriff, Tom Dow, at 308-286-3364.
