The incident comes after a series of hate crimes against Muslims around the area. In January, a woman was caught on camera smashing the windows at the Islamic Center of Davis. She also left bacon on a door handle. She has not been identified, but authorities did raid a home last week connected to the investigation.MORE NEWS: Fallen Tree Blocks Multiple Lanes Of Highway 99 In Lodi
