HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. -- Northern Kentucky University police are searching for a person suspected of tampering with an anti-abortion display on campus. 

Security video released by NKU police shows the suspect, a woman in jeans and a hoodie, pulling up crosses from a makeshift “graveyard” meant to represent the number of abortions that take place each day. Police said the suspect uprooted around 35 crosses in total. 

A Facebook post made by Northern Right to Life, the student group behind the display, showed the discarded crosses in a pile near the original. According to that post, vandalism directed at the group’s displays has been common over the last 11 years.

The suspect, if identified, will face charges of criminal mischief.
