A man who spread swastikas on multiple buildings, including a Jewish museum, on two occasions in Anchorage, Alaska, was sentenced to 18 months in jail, reports KTUU news.

Luke Foster, 28, was found guilty of posting swastika stickers and carving the antisemitic symbols into eight buildings in May of 2021, which contained the message “we are everywhere,” according to a report released by the United States Attorney’s Office District of Alaska. One of the other buildings targeted was the Anchorage campus of the University of Alaska.

Foster repeated the same crime at the museum in September of that year.

On top of his antisemitic hate crimes, the Attorney’s Office report related that federal agents who raided Foster’s home in November 2021 found illegal drugs, drug production equipment, “Nazi-inspired imagery, including a box of swastika stickers,” as well as a cache of weapons and ammunition. Foster also used social media to sell drugs, and was caught attempting to do so with an undercover federal agent.

“Mr. Foster’s hateful acts of pro-Nazi vandalism across our city have caused significant harm to multiple communities and his trafficking of drugs put the people of Alaska in danger,” U.S. Attorney for the District of Alaska S. Lane Tucker said. “Our U.S. Attorney’s Office will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to identify, investigate and prosecute crimes that target our communities to instill fear and distrust.”
