A monument covered in blue and yellow paint was spotted at around 10 AM on Tuesday.

A similar incident was reported on Sunday at a cemetery in a nearby town.

Egidijus Meižys, the local police chief, told BNS on Tuesday that the suspects had not been identified and the police entertained a theory that both crimes were committed by the same person.

"The locations are 15km apart, therefore, it’s possible that it was done by the same person. We don’t have suspects yet, an investigation is underway," he said.

The police have launched pre-trial investigations into both incidents.
