An arrest has been made after 160 Memorial Day crosses were damaged early Saturday in Henderson.

Police say a car driven by 27-year-old Anthony Burrus, of Henderson, drove through the display of crosses in Central Park around 6 a.m.

Officers say Burris denied causing the damage, but said he was driving a 1979 Ford Thunderbird on Saturday morning. He told officers he left the car at McDonald’s on South Green Street because it stopped running.

When officers found the car, it had pieces of a cross and ground stake embedded in the tires.

Police found Burris at his sister’s apartment in the 2600 block of Zion Road. He was arrested and taken to the Henderson County Detention Center.

Volunteers were able to get around 140 of the crosses back in the ground. While those will need some repairs, the others were completely destroyed.
