    Detectives on Long Island are looking for the suspects who vandalized religious displays three times in recent months, knocking over Virgin Mary statues and damaging a Nativity scene during the holiday season.

    Vandals tipped over a Virgin Mary statue outside a Knights of Columbus building in Bellmore sometime between Tuesday and Wednesday, breaking off the figure’s head, according to Nassau County police.

    Another Virgin Mary statue was also knocked over in the same spot in in July 2013, police say.

    Officers think the vandalism is also connected to damage done to a Nativity display in December.

    If you have any information on the vandalism, call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
