Reward offered for New Milford hate vandal

August 25, 2017 GMT

NEW MILFORD — A $5,000 reward was offered Friday for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people who spray-painted a swastika on Thompson’s Fine American Comfort Food in town.

On Wednesday, the Thompson family came across their two-month old restaurant defaced with a racial slur and Nazi symbol. Townspeople later stopped by to scrub and repaint the building’s facade and later dropped in for dinner to support the business.

An anonymous donor offered the reward money, according to a news release from Mayor David Gronbach.

Anyone with information should contact the New Milford Police tips line at (860) 355-2000 or email police at tips@newmilfordpolice.org, the release said.
