Only On: Toledo Parks Department Jeep on Forest Cemetery headstones

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A Toledo Parks Department Jeep was found at Forest Cemetery on top of damaged headstones Monday. No one was in the vehicle. WTOL 11 broke the news to the commissioner of the Parks and Forestry Department.

Denny Garvin, the commissioner of the Parks and Forestry Department, said he was shocked to hear the news. He did confirm this was one of his Jeeps, but could not say whether the Jeep was stolen or left there by an employee.

Three headstones were damaged and moved. There were no keys in the Jeep and the right front tire was flat.

Garvin said that all of the Jeeps are locked away in a garage at night and his employees were finished around 3:30 in the afternoon.

One woman says she came to the cemetery after seeing our report, just to make sure it wasn't her parents' graves.

Another man, visiting his family's grave sites, says it's a lack of respect for those who have passed on.

"There's nothing they could do to defend themselves. They've passed on. It's unfortunate -- more than unfortunate. It's just criminal," said Clifford David.

City officials would not comment on Tuesday, but did say they are doing a full investigation and will not comment until it's over.

We've also reached out to Toledo police who say they are not investigating this incident, only the city is.
