Large blue swastika painted on Jewish-owned business in New Jersey

A large blue swastika and the words “white power” have been spray-painted on a Jewish-owned business in Jackson, New Jersey.

The business, which police declined to name, is owned by a Jewish family who lives in nearby Lakewood, the Lakewood Scoop reported. Lakewood, in the southern part of the state, has a large Haredi Orthodox population.

The apparent vandal was captured on surveillance video, which shows a woman getting out of her vehicle and walking behind a trailer located on the business property, which was later vandalized, according to the Scoop.

Police do not say if the incident is being investigated as a hate crime, according to the report.

Jackson was sued twice earlier this month over its rejection of two development plans for the Orthodox Jewish community.
