Deputies make arrest in veterans' memorial vandalism

- The Rockdale County Sheriff's Office made an arrest in the vandalism of a veterans’ war memorial last month.

Sheriff Eric Levett announced the arrest of Wendell Tolbert Wednesday afternoon.

Levett said his office expects to arrest more suspects in the coming weeks.

Back in December, thieves broke into the park and stole two heavy bronze statues of soldiers, a massive 800-pound globe, and numerous plaques have been stolen from the Walk of Heroes Veterans War Memorial.

The sheriff's office is still investigating why the memorial was targeted, but they think drugs might be involved.
