Crews repair 2 vandalized gravestones at Hawaiian Mission Houses’ cemetery

HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Two headstones that were damaged at Hawaiian Mission Houses’ cemetery in June were re-installed Wednesday.

A spokesperson said Stonecrafters spent the past month repairing the gravestones, which are more than a century old.

The person who allegedly knocked them over was arrested about three weeks after the incident.

Police have said it didn’t appear to be linked to a separate incident at Kawaiahao Church Cemetery in June, in which 27 gravestones were vandalized.
