Authorities are investigating after the discovery of spray-painted threats against Gov. Jerry Brown.
The messages were scrawled on walls in Santa Ana. The OC Register reported that a resident called police Thursday to report the messages.
One message read: "We gonna kill Gov. Brown 2/14/11"
“At this point we have no significant knowledge of the importance of that date, other than its Valentine’s Day,” Cpl. Anthony Bertagna of the Santa Ana Police Department told the OC Register.
Another read: "27 MORE DAYS 4 BROWN." It included a swastika. A black "6" was painted over the "7" in 27.
Santa Ana police and the California Highway Patrol are investigating. The CHP’s Dignitary Protection Section is in charge of security for the governor.
The messages appeared after racial slurs were painted on Catholic churches and other buildings in the area. Authorities are investigating whether there's a connection.
