CARMEL, Ind.–A $2,500 reward is being offered for info on who painted a Nazi flag and iron crosses on an outbuilding at a synagogue in Carmel, as long as that info leads to an arrest. The Anti-Defamation League announced the reward Tuesday.

The graffiti was painted sometime late Friday or early Saturday. That’s when it was discovered on a shed and garbage bins at Congregation Shaary Tefilla.

The anti-semitic actions were condemned by Gov. Holcomb, state lawmakers, the DC lawmakers who represent Carmel, and over 1,000 people who gathered Monday for an interfaith service.

“This heinous incident demonstrates, yet again, the need for Indiana to pass a hate crimes law and send the message that Hoosiers will not tolerate crimes targeting people because of who they are,” said Lonnie Nasatir, ADL Midwest Regional Director.

Carmel Police and the FBI are looking into who did it. The flag and symbols will stay up as evidence until they are through with the investigation.
