SACRAMENTO (AP) – Police are investigating the mailing of a Quran submerged in a tub of what appeared to be pork lard to a Northern California Islamic center.
The Sacramento chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations received the mailed package in June. It follows two other incidents of defaced Qurans at nearby mosques last month.READ MORE: ‘Community Murals Sacramento’ Program Brings Art And Culture To The City

Sacramento Police officer Linda Matthew says the incident is being investigated as a “hate activity.” She says the package was sent from a shipping center in Houston by a white woman, and the Sacramento police do not know the woman’s name. No charges are expected because the activity does not rise to a criminal level.
The police have notified terrorist assessment agencies in Sacramento and the Houston area.MORE NEWS: Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse Just One Of Mother Nature's Wonders In The Sky Right Now
