Anchorage police seek public’s help to determine who put swastika stickers on buildings

Anchorage police are asking the public to help them track down whoever recently placed swastika stickers on two buildings, including the Alaska Jewish Museum.

The first report, regarding stickers found at the entrance to Mad Myrna’s on East Fifth Avenue, came in around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Anchorage police said in an alert. The stickers feature a black swastika on a white background with the words “we are everywhere” surrounding the Nazi symbol.

Another report was made around 5 p.m., this time involving the same stickers found at the Alaska Jewish Museum’s main entrance, on East 35th Avenue, according to police.

Police asked anyone with information about the investigation, including video, to call dispatch at 311. Anyone who finds a swastika sticker shouldn’t touch it or remove it, and they should instead call dispatch to make a report, according to police.

The Anchorage Police Department said it’s partnering with the FBI “to determine any potential state and federal violations.”

“There is no place for hate in our community,” police said.
