Posted By on Fri, Aug 14, 2020 at 12:38 PM

Crime Stoppers of Savannah-Chatham County is offering a cash reward up to $2,500 for information "leading to the arrest of the individual(s) who vandalized a Confederate monument in Savannah’s Laurel Grove Cemetery in early July," a spokesperson says.

“Silence- No More” was spray-painted on the Silence Memorial that was erected in 1878 to commemorate Confederate soldiers at the Battle of Gettysburg.

"The Savannah Police Department is currently investigating the vandalism. While no arrests have been made at this time, a hidden security camera captured what appears to be two white suspects breaking and spray-painting the statue," Crime Stoppers says.


Information about this crime can be reported anonymously by calling the Crime Stoppers, 24/7 tip-line at 912.234.2020 or by going online to savannahcrimestoppers.org. Tipsters will not be asked for their name, phone number or any other identifiable information at any time.
