Six statues at Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes in Sudbury, Ontario were beheaded, according to CTV News.
"We're saddened," David Sirois, of Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie, said. "There's enough volunteers and people who have donated to try and keep this site nice... for the general public. Then when you see damages like that, you wonder who would do that kind of thing?"
Sirois continued by saying that it was "easier to be here without anyone noticing them easily, so that's probably why they were trying to be more quiet at doing it and just grabbing the parts that were easily accessible on the statues."
Sirois contacted Greater Sudbury Police immediately after he discovered what had happened.
“Unfortunately with no video surveillance, and no witnesses at the scene we do not have a suspect at the moment,” Sarah Kaelas, of Greater Sudbury Police Service, said.
"It has been reassigned to our break enter and robbery unit, which falls under our criminal investigation division."
The Diocese of Sault Ste. is considering having the statues replaced by an organization out of Toronto, but it is currently unknown how much it will cost to do so.
