CUYAHOGA FALLS, OH (WOIO) -

Police Officers say three juveniles will be charged Tuesday with damaging or destroying grave markers in Oakwood Cemetery.

Cuyahoga Falls Police Chief Tom Pozza said the boys, ages 15 to 17, will be charged in Summit County Juvenile Court.

The 17-year-old faces three counts of felony vandalism; a 16-year-old will be charged with one count; and the 15-year-old with two counts of felony vandalism.

The older boy also is charged with receiving stolen property from a previous incident.

Pozza said the majority of the 60 headstones were toppled, not smashed or damaged, between March 30 and April 16.

"The detectives spoke with all three, who gave confessions," Pozza said.

The suspects' identifications were determined through tips and the police investigation, he said.
