Devonshire Area Hate Incident Investigated NR121160cj

Los Angeles: On Monday, April 03, 2012, around 10:30 a.m., LAPD Devonshire Area officers responded to two different radio calls of “Vandalism” in the community of Northridge.

Devonshire Detectives conducted a follow-up investigation which led to the identification of all of the involved parties responsible for the alleged vandalism.  The involved subjects responded to the station and provided formal statements regarding the incident.

The investigation revealed the involved individuals placed a Swastika using maple syrup at the scene of a private residence, in addition to committing other acts not amounting to criminal conduct.

Although no criminal conduct was established during these incidents, Hate Crimes and Hate incidents are not just a violation against an individual or group, but also against society as a whole.  As such, the LAPD places a very high priority on hate crimes.  The Los Angeles Police Department, Devonshire Detective Division aggressively investigated this mater to its resolution.

If anyone has questions regarding this incident, contact Devonshire Area Captain, K. Pitcher at 213-300-0445 or Lt. S. Atwater or Det. II, S. Lozano, Devonshire Area Detectives at 818-832-0609.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
