CLEARWATER, Fla. — A Tampa man has been charged with criminal mischief after Swastikas were painted on a library earlier this month.
Police now say they are trying to charge Christian Changnon with a hate crime.
Changnon is accused of painting a yellow Swastika in the parking lot of the North Greenwood Library in Clearwater.
Authorities say he also painted a Swastika on the garage door of a nearby property.
Police believe his actions were in response to charges filed against Michael Drejka, the man charged with manslaughter in a July shooting outside a convenience store.
