Inmates work to remove hate messages from Hyannis cemetery

HYANNIS – Inmates from the Barnstable County House of Correction worked to remove anti-Semitic symbols and hate words directed at police Tuesday in a Hyannis cemetery.

The damage was done sometime this past weekend at the Oak Grove Cemetery off Sea Street.

Several headstones were also pushed over.

An inmate crew used a high-pressure washer to remove the spray-painted messages.

Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to contact Barnstable Police.
