Swastikas painted on church sign in Juneau County

WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. (AP) -- The Juneau County sheriff's office is investigating a hate crime against a Native American church.

Juneau County Sheriff Brent Oleson says members of the Native American Church in the Wisconsin Dells found a two swastikas spray-painted on their sign Wednesday morning.

Church member Janice Cloud says that while the swastika marks the first time the church has filed a police report, there have been prior, unreported acts of vandalism, theft and racial intimidation.

Oleson said Friday that deputies found a liquor bottle at the scene but were unable to lift prints from it. He suspects two people were involved because a swastika was painted on each side of the sign in different colors.

Deputies have not made any arrests yet.
