Graffiti sprayed across back walls of Stratford Public Library

Police are investigating after graffiti was spray painted along the back walls of the Stratford Public Library.

Police believe the message was in reference to a public meeting community leaders hosted last week regarding racial conflicts in the town.

According to police, there were also anti-war messages painted on the walls. Due to the anti-war messages, authorities are treating the incident as a vandalism case and not a hate crime.
