The police department was investigating the incident as a hate crime, Police Chief John Troxell said. "We take this very seriously. These types of things tend to be a vandalism in nature and caused by youths in the area," said Troxell. "In my experience, it's usually a local youth that doesn't understand the ramifications of what it really means."
