Arrrests in Baltimore anti-Semitic graffiti

Three Jews have been arrested in connection with anti-Semitic graffiti in Baltimore.

Two adults and one juvenile – all reportedly Jews – were charged Tuesday with misdemeanors for destruction of property and damage to a religious entity, according to the Baltimore Jewish Times.

They allegedly defaced signs at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation and Beth Tfiloh Synagogue advertising the Baltimore Associated’s fall campaign. The signs were found Sunday morning with spray-painted inverted swastika symbols and the phrases “Nazis” and “WK.”

A police spokesman told the Times that investigators do not believe the case is “hate-related.”
