The FBI is offering a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual responsible for the vandalizations of synagogues in Huntsville, Alabama.
In the early morning hours of April 9, 2020, the Etz Chayim Synagogue, located at 7705 Bailey Cove Road, Huntsville, Alabama, was vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti. The following day, in the early morning hours of April 10, 2020, the Chabad of Huntsville, located at 1908 Parkhill Road SE, Huntsville, Alabama, was vandalized with similar anti-Semitic graffiti. Surveillance camera footage indicated the vandalisms were perpetrated by the same individual. The individual walked with a pronounced, distinct limp and appeared to have a prosthetic left leg. The individual may have been driving an early model Toyota Prius, light in color. Prior to the vandalizations, on April 4, 2020, the individual was seen walking on residential streets near the Chabad of Huntsville in the Blossomwood neighborhood.
The FBI’s Birmingham Field Office and the Huntsville Police Department are attempting to identify the individual responsible for the damage to these religious properties. Damage exceeding $5,000 to religious property is a felony offense.
