    16-Year-Old Charged in Acushnet Graveyard Vandalism

    A 16-year-old boy has been charged after a graveyard in Acushnet was vandalized in October.

    According to police, they arrested and charged the juvenile with desecrating on a place of burial and injuring a gravestone.

    An investigation was launched last month after several headstones were found overturned in Acushnet Cemetery in Acushnet, Massachusetts.

    Police did not release any further information because of the suspect's age.
