Police are looking for the person who scrawled Asian slurs on two vehicles parked outside a family’s home in New Smyrna Beach, a report said.

A 33-year-old man is charged with a hate crime after police say he scrawled slurs against Asians on two vehicles belonging to his dentist’s family in New Smyrna Beach, according to a charging affidavit.

Kyle K. Christiansen of Daytona Beach, was charged with felony vandalism (over $1,000 in damages), which is a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison. The hate crime enhancement typically increases the charge by one level, so a third-degree felony would be bumped up to a second-degree felony, which is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

While the agency expects that final lane configurations will be determined and installed in spring 2021, exact dates will depend on weather and
