Halloween display outside Johnston home vandalized

JOHNSTON, R.I. -

Every year, the Halloween display outside the Marsella's home on Bishop Hill gets bigger and bigger.

"The kids really enjoy it. We really enjoy it," said David Marsella.

And everyone else seemed to enjoy it too, until someone destroyed several of their decorations and props.

"I've got a homemade cemetery. They broke all of the tombstones and kicked stuff around and ripped the top off a coffin," Marsella said.

A tractor display was destroyed too. Marsella says about $400 worth of damage was done.

The family reported the vandalism to police.

"We encourage people who may have also been vandalized to contact police so we can redirect patrols," said Maj. Joe Razzi of the Johnston Police Department.

Razzi said it's not unusual for this time of year and said "some people just don't like Halloween."
