Three teenage boys were arrested on April 9 for burning swastikas into a lawn and street in San Dimas.

One of the boys is a 13-year-old from Covina, another is a 13-year-old from Hemet and the third is a 14-year-old from Long Beach. None of them have been publicly identified since they are minors.

On April 4, two swastikas were found burned into a family lawn in San Dimas; the family is not Jewish. A couple more swastikas were found later in the day burned into unincorporated street between San Dimas and Covina. On April 7, another swastika was found burned into a San Dimas street.

According to CBS Los Angeles, later on April 7 three small brush fires occurred that are believed to have been the result of the three teens using aerosol cans and cigarette lighters.

KTLA reports that investigators believe the three teens didn’t single out anyone, although the motive is still unknown.
