Three Connecticut Residents Arrested over ‘Holy Land’ Theme Park Antisemitic Vandalism

It’s not the first time that the Holy Land Theme Park in Waterbury has been the target of antisemitic vandalism, and this past weekend it happened again.

Last Friday vandals once again spray painted swastikas, antisemitic vulgarities, and a call out to the 960 street gang all over the Holy Land USA property.

Police issued a press release with photos of possible suspects who were seen leaving Target with what police believe are cans of spray paint that was used in the vandalism. The suspects were described as two teenage females and one teenage male.


The same possible suspects were also seen outside the entrance to Holy Land prior to entering the property and spray painting graffiti.

After releasing the images of the suspects, detectives immediately received several tips identifying the three individuals responsible leading to their arrest.

The suspects, two adults Heniel Centeno and Yianyilee Mejia are being held on bail pending arraignment. The name of the third suspect, a juvenile, has not been released.
