The FBI has joined the Van Buren County Sheriff’s investigation into antisemitic vandalism at a Michigan Jewish summer camp, local media reported.

Authorities have said three teenagers are responsible for spray-painting crude swastikas across the camp, including on a parked vehicle and the welcome sign, before campers awoke on Sunday morning.

The authorities are investigating the incident at Camp Agudah in Geneva Township, Michigan as a hate crime.

All three were caught on video, and police and FBI agents are working in concert to track down the teens.
