Someone placed a cross atop the tower of CAMAX COMMUNICATIONS Adult Standards WECM-A (MEMORIES 1490)/MILTON, FL, and investigators are looking into whether the act was related to the owner of the station being Jewish.
Owner BARON OF FULWOOD told the PENSACOLA NEWS-JOURNAL that the cross damaged wiring on the tower and affected the station's signal. He said that he considers the cross-placing a hate crime (although the police at this time are treating the incident as vandalism) and noted that he has gotten anonymous anti-Semitic phone calls.
