The Grand Rapids Police Department wants the public’s help in identifying two people who are suspected of defacing the grave sites of former President Gerald Ford and first lady Betty Ford.

According to the Associated Press the man appears to be marking or digging into panels that say, “Lives Committed to God, Country and Love.”

If the two are identified as suspects, the possible crime would be larceny of U.S. Government Property.

Based on surveillance footage and photographs the incident took place at around 4:00 PM on Wednesday, March 27th.

The former president and first lady are buried on the property of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum.

Anyone with information in this case is encouraged to contact Grand Rapids Police Sergeant Jana Forner at (616) 456-3836, Detective Curtis Sattertwaite at (616) 456-3989 or Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345.
