Arrest made in 2-year-old N.H. racist graffiti case


A two-year investigation into racist graffiti scrawled on the houses of several Concord families from Africa has resulted in an arrest. Raymond Stevens, 42, of Pembroke, was arrested Tuesday on a warrant charging him with criminal mischief. It was not known if he had a lawyer. Police said the state attorney general’s office, the FBI, the US attorney’s office, and authorities in Merrimack County, Nashua, and Pembroke assisted. The messages were written in black marker on siding next to the main door at each home. One message said, “You are not welcome here.”
