CHICO, Calif. - The Chico Police Department is investigating dozens of headstones vandalized at the Chico Cemetery overnight.

Chico Cemetery Manager Marc Brusie said that the headstones vandalized were all in the oldest part of the cemetery, which has been around since the 1800s. 

The cemetery, which is located on Mangrove Avenue, has security patrols in the evening but theBrusie said that they did not see the vandalism. 

The Chico Cemetary will have to pay for the damages and according to the Brusie, it could take years to fix due to lack of funding. 

He said they will have to appeal to the public for help in with funding. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chico Police Department at (530) 897-4900.
