Authorities also say they arrested two men who are accused of spray painting swastikas on a building on West Broadway.

Joshua Dyslin, 20, and Justus Miller, 37, were both cited for misdemeanors when a local resident spotted the two spray painting a swastika and profanity on a window at the Colonial Motel on West Broadway.

Police are investigating to see if there is any connection between this incident and anti-Semitic flyers that were distributed in Missoula.

MPD spokesman Sgt. Travis Welsh says detectives are gathering information from citizen reports and also working with the University of Montana Police Department.
