MORGANTOWN (AP) — Morgantown police are investigating the vandalism of Mylan Inc. co-founder Mylan Puskar's grave.

The Dominion Post reports that someone spray-painted the words "drug dealer" across Puskar's mausoleum in Oak Grove Cemetery.

Puskar co-founded Pennsylvania-based generic drug maker Mylan in 1961. He died in 2011 at 77.

Puskar's daughter, Johanna Puskar, is offering a reward for information that could lead to an arrest.

She says a Mylan employee discovered the vandalism Saturday morning. The employee had come to the cemetery to pay his respects.

Mylan Puskar gave tens of millions of dollars to West Virginia University. The football stadium at Mountaineer Field bears his name.
