CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — Charges were filed against three teenagers accused of vandalizing a local cemetery.

According to the Cuyahoga Falls police, a 17-year-old from Cuyahoga Falls, a 16-year-old from Akron and a 15-year-old from Cuyahoga Falls were involved.

Dozens of headstones were toppled at Oakwood Cemetery in May and June 2012.

This past Easter, more than 30 headstones were knocked over and damaged.

Weeks after that, it happened again.

Cuyahoga Falls police talked to people in the neighborhood and used tips to find their suspects.

The teens were then interviewed over the course of the last two weeks.  They were never arrested.

A $6,000 reward is under review to see if anyone qualifies for it.

The 17-year-old was charged with three counts of vandalism and one count of receiving stolen property from an unrelated incident; the 16-year-old was charged with one count of vandalism; and the 15-year-old was charged with two counts of vandalism.
