Florida Town Defaced with Antisemitic Graffiti

The DeSoto County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) tells Fox 4 they’re investigating antisemitic graffiti, including a ‘JEWS’ spray painted onto a STOP sign.

A Facebook post with the photo was captioned “So this is what this town has to come to.”

The symbol was found along NW Pierce Street, east of Arcadia where a stop sign had the word “Jews” spray painted on the sign.

This comes two weeks after a separate Cape Coral antisemitic incident, now being investigated as a hate crime, where a man tried to break into the Cape Chabad Jewish Center on a Saturday afternoon, as the Rabbi and a group of people were inside after Saturday services ended.

Thursday, Cape Coral Police Department (CCPD) confirmed that no arrests have been made in the investigation and there are currently no leads.

As CCPD continues their search, the DeSoto County has opened their own investigation. DCSO confirmed there is a person of interest, but still no one in custody.
