The Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a vandalism incident that happened in Plentywood early on Easter Sunday.

In a Facebook post, the Sheriff’s Office says that someone entered the Plentywood cemetery (by the airport) in a vehicle and proceeded to take a series of "joyrides" that covered most of the eastern half of the cemetery.

The sheriff’s office said that a majority of the graves in that part of the cemetery were driven over.

Due to the cemetery being covered in a layer of snow, they do not yet known the full extent to which the graves and headstones were disturbed or damaged.

Anyone with information about the crime, or anyone with a loved one whose grave was damaged, is asked to call the Sheridan County Sheriff’s Office at 406-765-1200.
