Paper was taped around both rocks, with the word “facism” written on one and “nazzism” on the other, Laney said.

Just after midnight, cleaning staff at the courthouse heard a loud noise, discovered the damage at the main entrance and alerted sheriff’s deputies, Laney said.

The sheriff’s department is investigating the vandalism. So far, detectives have no suspects, and a motive has not been determined, the sheriff said.
