INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A 20-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the spray-painting of anti-Semitic graffiti at a suburban Indianapolis synagogue.

Prosecutors announced Thursday that Nolan Brewer of Cloverdale is charged with conspiracy to violate civil rights in the vandalism at Congregation Shaarey Tefilla.

Brewer remains in U.S. marshals' custody after appearing in court Thursday for an initial hearing.

Nazi flags and iron crosses were found spray-painted July 28 on a brick shed at the synagogue in Carmel, just north of Indianapolis.

U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler says tips from the public led authorities to Brewer and a store's surveillance footage showed Brewer and a co-conspirator buying spray paint used in the vandalism.

The co-conspirator has also been arrested, but Minkler declined to comment, saying the investigation was ongoing.
