FORT WAYNE – A man was arrested Tuesday after police said he spray-painted graffiti on a southeast-side home and garage.
Kevin Sizemore, 47, of the 3600 block of Oliver Street, is charged with felony criminal mischief. He was being held in lieu of $2,500 bail.
Police were called June 2 to a home in the 3500 block of Oliver Street after a woman living there awoke to find “KKK,” swastika images and racial slurs spray-painted on her home and garage. Damage was estimated at $2,500, police said.
Police say Sizemore, a neighbor, spray-painted the home after a dispute he had with the landlord who rents the home. The crime is not believed to be racially motivated, police said.
