NYSSA, Ore. (AP) - Three organizations are collectively offering $2,250 for information leading to the arrest of vandals who damaged more than 40 gravestones in an Oregon cemetery.

The Idaho Statesman reports the Three Rivers Crimestoppers and OM Stone are contributing $1,000 and $250, respectively, to a $1,000 reward started by the Cemetery Association of Oregon. They are seeking information about 40 to 50 headstones that were damaged May 2 at the Hilltop Memorial Cemetery in Nyssa.

Officials say the vandals caused at least $50,000 worth of damage.

The Cemetery Association of Oregon says insurance will not cover the damages.

Abuse of a memorial to the dead carries a maximum fine of $50,000 under Oregon law.
