SAN DIMAS, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are investigating after swastikas were burned into synthetic grass at a Southern California home.

The swastikas were created late Wednesday or early Thursday by someone who poured a corrosive substance on the lawn at Ted Ferris’ home in San Dimas. Two other swastikas were burned onto pavement about a block away.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Peter Shupe tells the Los Angeles Times that because Ferris isn’t Jewish it’s being investigated as felony vandalism rather than a hate crime.

Local Jewish Federation executive director Jason Moss says the frequency of swastika graffiti is concerning.

Repairing the damage could amount to $6,000.
