Police Investigating Possible Hate Bias After Swastika Found at New England Golf Course
MONMOUTH, MAINE— A swastika ripped into the turf at a Maine golf course may be investigated as a hate crime, according to authorities there.
Several spots on the Cobbossee Colony Golf Course were vandalized with golf carts sometime Sunday night, according to a report in the Portland Press Herald.
Turf around four holes were damaged in what police think is an isolated incident. The damage is estimated to be about $2,000 to $3,000 dollars.
Monmouth Police Department Patrolman Michael Pershall said in the report because the swastika was made during the commission of a crime, it could prompt a hate-bias investigation.
