GREENSBURG, Ind. (WISH) - A 17-year-old boy is facing adult charges after police say he vandalized a Greensburg cemetery.
Joshua Waller faces a felony charge of cemetery mischief.
A witness who was with Waller on the night of the incident told police Waller went to visit the cemetery after a late-night fishing get-together. Waller said he wanted to visit the cemetery because it is haunted, the witness says.
The witness says they went to the graveyard after Waller and the other boy and found a number of headstones damaged beyond repair. Our partners at the Greensburg Daily News say the suspect admitted to doing the damage to his friends "because they were bored" and because they were trying to "arouse the dead."
Another witness told police that Waller and another boy went back to the cemetery later that night to do more damage to the cemetery. Officials say 21 headstones were damaged in the incident, with the total cost of repairs being $5,200.
Waller denied his involvement in the vandalism.
Officials are also looking for another juvenile suspect in the case, who left town before he could speak with police.
