GENEVA, N.Y. (WROC) — The Geneva Police Department officials says a 12-year-old Geneva resident is to blame for spray-painting swastikas on the sides of buildings and “white power” on a shed as well.

Police say the 12-year-old is the only person involved in the three incidents. 

Their investigation is ongoing and the suspect will be treated as a juvenile delinquent. 

Police executed a search warrant at the juvenile suspect’s home Thursday evening. Investigators say they recovered evidence relating to the crimes, and evidence to support filing of a hate crime.
