ARAB, AL (WAFF) -

A company in Arab spent Friday morning cleaning up a mess in the Arab city cemetery. Police said at least a dozen headstones were vandalized over the Fourth of July Holiday Weekend.

The Arab Monument Company worked for several hours Friday morning to reset all the stone free of charge.

Arab police said they were following up on a few new leads. Earlier in the week they said they suspected teenagers were responsible for the damage. Investigators are offering a $2,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the person or persons who vandalized the graves.

Cindy Dudley's stillborn daughter's grave was vandalized. She said she was thankful for the Arab Monument Company and hopeful that the vandals are caught soon.
