FORT COLLINS, [CO]--Police are investigating vandalism at a Masonic Temple in Fort Collins as a hate crime. Officers were called out to the fraternal organization’s building in the 200 block of Oak Street at about noon on Monday to investigate graffiti spray painted on the steps and pillars. “The black spray paint depicts upside-down crosses and the phrase ‘great tribulation is at hand,’ ” police said in a news release noting that the vandalism likely occurred between Sunday evening and Monday morning. Because of the location and nature of the graffiti, police say the vandalism is being investigated as a bias-motivated crime. Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to contact Officer Ben Athearn at 970-221-6555 or at bathearn@fcgov.com. Tipsters, who can remain anonymous, can also ring Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868. View More>>
