UWCHLAN — Vandals sprayed anti-Semitic graffiti on street signs in this area earlier this month, but according to state police and the Anti-Defamation League, there are no signs that hate-crime is increasing in Chester County.
Several street signs in the Davis Road area were spray-painted with swastikas, and at least one had the word Jews written underneath, said Uwchlan Police Chief Pat Davis.
Cpl. Jack Laufer of the state police said the graffiti appeared to be isolated incidents.
"I can think of nothing (like this) in the last few months, and I've been here since the end of August," said Laufer, of the Embreeville barracks. ''The only thing of any note was the cross-burning in Honey Brook," which officials blamed on a Klan group trying to intimidate an African American family.
