LIVERMORE FALLS — Authorities are looking for the vandal or vandals who knocked over dozens of headstones in a Livermore Falls cemetery.

Police say the damage occurred sometime between 1:30 a.m. Monday when a cruiser patrolled through Pleasant View Cemetery, and 5 a.m., when the vandalism was first noticed.

Vandals broke lights, flags, statues and knocked over the stones.

Erica Poland told the Sun Journal it looked as if a tornado had gone through the cemetery, although her infant son’s grave was untouched.

A dispatcher with the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office said a tracking dog from the department was called in to assist at the scene Monday morning but there were no reports of arrests.
