Green Lawn Cemetery vandalized again, suspect caught on camera

COLUMBUS (WCMH)– Green Lawn Cemetery was vandalized for the second in five months.

This time someone was caught on camera.

This usually peaceful cemetery has become one vandals playground.

Cemetery Trustee Randy Rogers does not like what he’s been doing.

“He toppled over several monuments and he broke out some stain glass. It’s hard to understand how a person could take a piece of metal and beat out a beautiful, original piece of stain glass.”

For this incident that happened January 8 is estimated at $13 thousand.

Thanks to game cameras places around the cemetery, they believe they have their man.

“We feel pretty strongly that he is the guy who’s been coming in and doing a lot of the damage,” said Rogers.

On January 29 there will be a walk to benefit Green Lawn Cemetery restoration. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
