SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- Police are continuing to investigate last weekend's graffiti incident at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School, according to Scotch Plains Police Chief Ted Conley.
"Obviously we condemn such acts of hate, we strongly feel that these awful actions do not reflect the feeling of the majority of our residents," Conley said in an interview with TAPintoSPF. "These rare incidents appear to be the actions of some of our younger residents who are severely misguided and often do not realize how their words and/or actions really do hurt others in our community."
Conley added that his department's Detective Bureau has been working non-stop on the case since the weekend and has been in contact with Prosecutor Monahan of the Union County Prosecutor's Office and his staff.
"They fully support our investigation and have offered to help in any way they can," Conley said. "If anyone has any information on this case, contact Det. Sgt. Donnell Joyce (908) 322-7100, x113.
