OLATHE, Kan. (WDAF) -- Families are outraged after dozens of headstones at Olathe Cemetery, some dating back to the 1800s, were vandalized over the holiday.

Many headstones at the historic cemetery near Northgate and Harold Street are covered with flowers and flags this time of year. But dozens were left broken and toppled over for families to find.

A spokesperson for Olathe Parks and Recreation said the vandalism happened between Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

As the investigation continues, this week crews will be taking pictures of the damage to see what needs to be replaced or repaired. Officials said they don't know who is behind the vandalism or how much the repairs will cost.

If you would like to donate to help with the repairs, you can contact Olathe Cemetery's main office at 913-971-5226.
