Illinois State Police Offer Help in Catching Waukegan Jewish Cemetery Vandals

(Waukegan, IL)  Illinois State Police have offered their assistance in finding those responsible for vandalizing a Waukegan cemetery. Waukegan Police were called around 8 o’clock on Monday morning to a Jewish cemetery in the 3-thousand-block of Grand Avenue. A total of 39 headstones had been defaced with red spray-paint, 16 of those with swastikas. Waukegan Mayor Ann Taylor called the vandalism a “despicable act,” something Governor JB Pritzker echoed on Wednesday. No arrests have been announced, and Waukegan Police are asking anyone with information on the crime, to contact them.
