Pittsfield, Mass. – Pittsfield police say a man has told them he printed antisemitic messages and left them on cars for "shock value."
The investigation began in February when Virginia O'Leary reported to Pittsfield police she found a parking receipt on her windshield with the words "Kill the Jew" written on it.
Police used surveillance video from the North Street area where she was parked and found a suspect.
Police say during questioning, 27-year-old Joshua Tagge told them he printed that receipt and another.
He said he placed them on cars for shock value.
Police expect to charge Tagge with threat to commit a crime and a civil rights violation.
