Senseless vandalism at a cemetery in Cranston. Dozens of tombstones knocked over, some even smashed into pieces.

It happened at Pocasset Cemetery sometime over the long labor day weekend.

Most of the stones were toppled on Main Street any people who visit the cemetery say the vandals didn't have to try hard to get in.

The cemetery doesn't have a gate. Many say something needs to be done to stop the vandalism.

Right now, it's up to the families to repair the grave stones...

In the meantime, cemetery officials say besides adding a gate.

They're also looking into installing surveillance cameras...
