SENECA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Seneca police said a group of vandals damaged headstones at Oak Grove Cemetery.

Police said that last Thursday five graves were disturbed. They said some headstones were knocked over and some other decorations were broken.

Investigators said the damage was so extensive there was no way it could have happened on accident.

"I'm estimating that over 100 items have been damaged, destroyed, stolen or somehow disturbed," said Michael Teramano, of the Seneca Police Department. "Those hundred items (are) among several different graves that are connected to the same people."

Police said they have several leads they are investigating.

Anyone with information about the vandalism was asked to call the Seneca Police Department at 864-885-2718.
