UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A $10,000 reward is being offered for anyone who has information leading an arrest in connection to vandalism that occurred at a Jewish cemetery in University City.

On February 20, police received reports of vandalism at Chesed Shel Emeth Cemtery at 7550 Olive. Hundreds of headstones were knocked over or damaged.

Police said they are reviewing 100 hours of surveillance footage from nearby businesses and are lifting fingerprints from 180 headstones.

University Police Captain Frederick Lemons said there is currently no evidence linking Juan Thompson, a St. Louisan accused of calling in threats to Jewish Community Centers, to the vandalism, but Lemons added that police would like to interview him.

If you have any information call Crimestoppers at 1-866-371-8477.
