Los Angeles police have arrested 46 year old Wan Ryung Song, aka Patrick Song, for scrawling a swastika and anti-Semitic epithets on the Wilshire Boulevard Temple on December 6.
Song is believed to be connected to the recent bomb threat on the synagogue which led police to conduct an hours-long quarantine and bomb search of a patrol car parked across from the synagogue.
He is being charged with four counts of issuing a bomb threat, one count of vandalism at a house of worship, and one count of conducting a hate crime.
