Vandals break arm off Vineland’s Lady Liberty statue

    Cumberland County, N.J. statues are not having the best of luck these days.

    Back in December, Bridgeton’s Civil War statue lost its head. And sometime over the past weekend, Vineland’s Lady Liberty statue lost an arm.
    The replica Statue of Liberty outside the Vineland Historical & Antiquarian Society is missing her right arm – the one that hold the torch. The Daily Journal reports the damage is the work of suspected vandals.

    Vandals also got the best of Bridgeton’s statue, but had some help from weather damage.
