Police investigate possible bias crime in Midwood

Police are investigating a possible bias crime in Midwood after a number of swastikas were found all around the community.

Swastikas were found in various places along East 5th Street and at a Jewish school on Ocean Parkway.

The words, "Die Jews," were also spray painted on a garage.

Elected officials are outraged, and the local community board plans to bring the subject up at their next meeting to discuss how they will take action.
