Concealed handgun permit application in New Hampshire leads to arrest of someone who wrote racist graffiti
Police say a detective combed through hundreds of gun permit applications in Concord, N.H., to find one with a distinctive lowercase "b'' that led to an arrest in a 2-year-old racist graffiti case. . . .
The graffiti was scrawled in black permanent marker on the homes of several African refugee families in 2011 and 2012. The messages on the houses called the occupants "subhumans" and told them they are "not welcome." . . .
A police affidavit said Detective Wade Brown went through about 1,500 handwritten gun permit applications as part of the investigation.
