DECATUR CO., GA (WALB) - The Decatur County Sheriff's Office is looking for the suspect responsible for vandalizing one of its church's graveyards.

Deputies said the driver of a Ford F-150 drove right through the Salem Independent Baptist Church's graveyard late Saturday night.

You can still see tire marks around broken headstones and other grave sites.

Dollie Harrison visited the graveyard Tuesday morning to make sure her loved ones' sites had not be destroyed.

Harrison said, "I feel so sorry for these people that have loved ones here and somebody comes and does something like this.  There are some things that you just don't do. And this is one of them."

Captain Gale Bowyer said they were able to uncover the suspect's truck around midnight Monday night and an arrest is pending.
