The graffiti was produced by black spray paint and includes large, upside-down crosses on every pillar and the phrase “great tribulation is at hand” down the front steps.

Because of the nature of the crime, it is being investigated as a bias-motivated crime.

In the press release Police Chief John Hutto said, “defacing religious or cultural gathering places is a particular appalling act. We need those with information to step up so the perpetrator can face consequences.”

The Fort Collins Police Department encourages anyone with information regarding the incident to contact Officer Ben Athearn at 970-221-6555 or Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868. Tipsters will remain anonymous if preferred.
