Bible Burned, Swastika Painted In Spokane Yard

SPOKANE, Wash. – Spokane Police say a series of spray painted images and vandalism on Monday morning could be as simple as a teenage prank or as large as a hate crime.

Detectives are investigating the scene in the 7000 block of North Cochran where a homeowner found a burned bible, spray painted swastikas and vulgar language painted on his home around 2 a.m. Monday.

Trees were also covered in toilet paper and dozens of plastic forks were stuck in the lawn.

Police interviewed people inside the home. Authorities said one suspect was identified, but no arrests have been made.

The mother of a teenage girl in the home said she does not believe the paint was racially or religiously motivated and she does not consider the incident a hate crime.

She said whoever is responsible should be brought to justice and face consequences for the incident, but she also said she does not want them to have a felony conviction for the rest of their life.

Friends and family members spent Monday afternoon scrubbing paint from the side of the home and boats parked in the driveway.

The homeowner estimates it will cost approximately $5,000 to repaint the house.

Neighbors say another home in the same neighborhood was also spray painted last night. Police were unable to confirm the report.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233.
