The search is on for vandals who caused serious damage to a cemetery. Authorities say 41 headstones were overturned at the Delaware Indian Cemetery in Dewey.

Two headstones are permanently damaged and five boundary markers have been stolen. Officials say this is the second time the cemetery has been vandalized in the past two and a half months.

Vandalizing an American Indian cemetery is a federal crime.
