Obviously having pieces of a cross and ground stake embedded in the tires of your abandoned 1979 Ford Thunderbird at a McDonald's restaurant, isn’t exactly covering your tracks, and almost guarantees a visit from the police and no doubt an arrest.

Of course aside from being a petty thug you also happen to be a bit moronic and admit to the investigating officers that you were driving the vehicle earlier in morning and left it the restaurant because it wouldn't start, isn’t exactly a smart move.

Police also found parts of the crosses and a ground stake embedded in the tires.

And of course what follows is the arrest of Anthony Burrus, 27 who police charge with plowing and destroying more than 150 crosses in the downtown Memorial Day cross display with his vehicle early Saturday.

Each cross had the name of a military service-person from Henderson who had perished.

“For somebody to do this to a veteran who gave his life, I don’t understand. I don’t have any words. I’m speechless,” American Legion member Jim Hanley told “The Henderson Gleaner.”

“I lost my son seven years ago, and this is so sad to know somebody would do this without thinking about the consequences,” Bob Dutton Sr., who found the destroyed cross dedicated to his son Robert K. Dutton, said.

Henderson Police Public Information Officer Jennifer Richmond said that a large number of tips, vehicle searches and Facebook posts helped police link the crime to Burrus.
