Police Probe Vandalism at Upstate NY Jewish Cemetery

WARWICK, N.Y. (AP) -

State police are investigating Nazi-inspired vandalism that occurred last fall at a Jewish cemetery in the Hudson Valley in Orange County.

Troopers say last October, the words “HEIL HITLER” and other Nazi symbolisms — SS bolts and a swastika — were spray-painted in black on a brick wall at the front entrance of a Jewish cemetery in the town of Warwick.

Troopers in Monroe are seeking the public’s assistance and the Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to a conviction in the case.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Warwick police at 845-986-3423, or state police at 845-782-8497.
