ROWLAND HEIGHTS — Sheriff’s officials are investigating graffiti found early Saturday at a Mormon church as a hate crime, authorities said, however little other information was released.
The graffiti was discovered about 8:15 a.m. by a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 2120 Valencia Street, said Los Angeles County sheriff’s Sgt. Robert Causey, who declined to give his first name.
“That’s all I can disclose,” the sergeant said, adding that the incident was being handled by the Sheriff’s Hate Crime Task Force, which also released no information.
Sheriff’s officials refused Saturday to say how extensive the graffiti was or what was written.
Church officials could not be reached Saturday afternoon for comment.
