ACUSHNET — After an investigation into the October 3 vandalism at the Acushnet Cemetery, criminal charges for the damage are being sought against a 16-year-old juvenile male.

Eighteen headstones were found overturned at the Main Street cemetery. All of those gravestones were located on the western side of the cemetery.

In addition to the stones, some decorations at grave sites had been smashed and thrown around, according to police.

Because of the age of the suspect, no other information will be released.
