Vandals have knocked over nearly 100 headstones at the Highland Cemetery in Great Falls.
The damage was done sometime late Monday night or early Tuesday morning.
Chris Burnett, the cemetery caretaker, was stunned by what he found when he arrived on Tuesday.
Burnett said, "I don't understand why someone would come out and do all this. It just doesn't make any sense. It doesn't take much to push them over but to put them back up takes fifteen minutes."
Most of the damage was done in the old section of the cemetery, but several heavy ones were knocked over in a newer section, where the headstones weigh nearly a ton.
