Police say a gas station in Greenup County was found vandalized early this morning.

Vulgar phrases and symbols found on the building included "White Power" and drawings of swastikas.

The gas station's owner came to America more than 20 years ago from India. He said he is both shocked and disturbed by the vandalism.

Kentucky State Police are investigating the case as criminal mischief. They are also working with county prosecutors to discuss a hate crime charge on those responsible.
