Swastika painted on Montecito street

MONTECITO, Calif. -

Some members of the Jewish community are angry.  They want to know who painted a swastika across a busy Montecito intersection.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department said someone spray painted the San Ysidro Road and Jameson Lane intersection overnight Tuesday.

Someone also painted over the street signs at the intersection.

Sheriffs received several calls from concerned citizens.

The swastika was removed by cleanup crews Wednesday morning.

Sheriffs don't have any suspects or leads in the case.

Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley said the incident is not legally a hate crime unless it turns out it happened near a known Jewish person's home or event.

If you know anything about the incident, contact the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department.
