Today’s Midweek Special focuses on repeated Vandalism and a Fire which took place in Franklin Township.
On Monday, January 9, 2017, at approximately 8:20pm, an unknown male started a fire at Green Lawn Cemetery. It is also believed that prior to setting the fire, the suspect knocked over several monuments and broke out a stained glass window. This could be the same suspect involved in the vandalisms that took place at the cemetery between August 14 and November 26, 2016, which Crime Stoppers featured on December 25, 2016.
Green Lawn Cemetery and Central Ohio Crime Stoppers are partnering to stop the desecration of gravesites at the cemetery. Tips will be taken by Central Ohio Crime Stoppers and a $1,000 reward will be sponsored by Green Lawn Cemetery. So long as this partnership is in effect, the funds for the $1,000 reward will be provided to Crime Stoppers by Green Lawn Cemetery and the cash reward of $1,000 will then be paid to the anonymous tipster for any information leading to the arrest and/or indictment of the person(s) responsible for this crime. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 614-461-TIPS (8477) or go to our website at www.stopcrime.org and e-mail your tip. You can text a tip to “CRIMES” 274637, key word CMH.
