Glastonbury police have arrested a man who is accused of writing “KKK” in an elevator at his apartment building, then reporting it to police.
Alec Kasson, a 29-year-old resident of The Soap Factory Apartments, has been charged with criminal mischief in the third degree, desecration of property, intimidation due to bias in the third degree, breach of peace in the second degree, and falsely reporting an incident in the second degree.
Police said he reported that “KKK” was on the walls of an elevator in his condominium complex on Jan, 7. Then, when police interviewed him, Kasson confessed to writing “KKK” in the elevator.
According to police, Kasson wrote on the elevator walls after several complaints had been made to police over a week period about swastikas being drawn around the same complex.
He has not been charged with drawing the swastikas, police said.
Kasson was released on $10,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Manchester Superior Court on Jan. 30.
Glastonbury Police continue to investigate the vandalism involving swastikas at The Soap Factory.
Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Kopencey at 860-652-4269.
