Man charged in defacing of synagogue

        AMBERLEY VILLAGE — Police have filed ethnic intimidation and other charges against a Greenhills man because he allegedly spray-painted menacing words on a Jewish synagogue in December.

        Jeremy Dilbert, 24, was arrested in Lake City, Tenn., last week, Amberley Police Chief John Monohan said.

        “We are waiting for him to be extradited back here,” Chief Monohan said.

        Chief Monohan said Mr. Dilbert sprayed orange paint on Adath Israel Synagogue, 3201 Galbraith Road, on Dec. 26, 29 and 30. The paint was sprayed on the sidewalks and on panel ing outside the synagogue.

        “He spelled out some menacing words against Jews, but they were somewhat incoherent. We were able to figure out who it was after the Dec. 30 incident.” Chief Monohan said.

        Mr. Dilbert was driving a four-door Mercedes, the same car he showed up with in Lake City, the chief said. Mr. Dilbert also is charged with breaking and entering and vandalism on the temple property, Chief Monohan said.

        Mr. Dilbert is now a patient at Lakeshore Mental Facility in Tennessee, a Lake City dispatcher said.

        The dispatcher said he did not know when or whether Mr. Dilbert would be brought to Amberley Village.
