Boca Raton Condominium Complex Vandalized by Swastika

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office confirms that a swastika was spray-painted on the side of Fanshaw J building in Century Village in West Boca.

Neighbors tell WPTV it’s in the area by a directory and mailboxes.

PBSO sent personnel to the scene, but spokeswoman Teri Barbera said there were no surveillance cameras in the area.

The Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County security director, Alan Poland, urges everyone to be on the lookout and report any suspicious activity.

“In the last few years, we’ve seen an increase in this type of rhetoric, and one of the things that we have to remember is that at this point, we are really talking about hate that moves at the speed of social media,” Poland said. “We need to understand that our community is prepared. Because we can’t choose the time and place of the next act of hate, but we can choose our level of preparedness.”

Boca Raton Police say they are increasing security at synagogues and every religious institution in the city.

“FDLE and our law enforcement partners across Florida are on full alert to protect our communities. FDLE will use the full weight of Florida law to ensure the safety of our Jewish and all faith-based communities against these hate groups.”
