THE Temora community is hopeful a bigger reward will secure the prosecution of the vandals responsible for desecration of the town's cemetery.Temora Shire Council, local business owners and mayor Peter Spiers have united to offer a $25,000 reward for information leading to the prosecution of the vandals responsible for the damage.Almost three months ago, 49 grave sites in the monumental section of the cemetery were vandalised.The damage was estimated to be about $80,000.Community outrage at the devastating attack prompted Temora Shire Council to issue a $5000 reward in October, in the hope of finding those responsible for the damage.However, police have been unable to find the necessary evidence to prosecute the vandals responsible.Councillor Spiers said the community was "turning up the spotlight" in the hope of bringing an end to the issue."I've been in local government for a long time and this is the most divisive issue we have had," he said."There is a growing swell of concern from wide-ranging sections of the community."It has taken so long and produced nothing at this stage."Temora police sergeant David Abercrombie said it was hoped the increased reward would help "flush people out from under the woodwork"."Anything to help bring about a prosecution is welcomed," he said.Cr Spiers said he wasn't surprised the community continued to feel so strongly about the vandalism."There are some things the community rolls with the punches a bit and this isn't one of them," he said."The community is standing up for these families and those who were in the community in a past life."Anyone with information is asked to contact Temora police on 6977 2044.
