Veteran graves vandalized

Altoona - An Altoona cemetery says more than 150 flags were stolen from veterans graves just days before Veterans Day.

 Members of the Fairview Cemetery Board say they first noticed the vandalism Wednesday night. 

Six juveniles have been charged with disorderly conduct. One of them is also accused of desecration of a grave site in connection to that case. 

We're told flags were pulled from the graves and then burned, while Civil War gravestones were knocked over. 

Volunteers say they will be placing new flags on the graves in time for Veterans Day.
