Vandals spray painted curse words referring to the Muslim Allah and dropped bacon at the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro overnight Sunday on Veals Road, a Rutherford County Sheriff’s supervisor said.
Employees found vandals used green spray paint to deface two walls, a large panel on the east side of the building and concrete on the basketball court, said Detective Sgt. Dan Goodwin. Bacon was placed at the entrance of the school.
Detectives collected evidence while processing the crime scene. They have talked with federal authorities about the crime.
“We are looking for anyone with information about people who may have talked about defiling the mosque,” Goodwin said.
People who have any information or neighbors on Veals Lane who may have seen something strange Sunday night or Monday morning are asked to call Goodwin at 615-904-3034.
