Police: Major announcement in Arroyo Grande cross burning case tomorrow

The Arroyo Grande Police Department says it will make a "major announcement" in the Arroyo Grande cross burning case Friday.

Officers will hold a press conference at 2p.m. at city council chambers. Representatives from the Arroyo Grande Police Department and other law enforcement agencies who assisted in the extensive investigation, as well as city leaders and community groups will be present. KSBY will be there to bring you the very latest.

In the overnight hours of March 18, officers say someone burned a cross in the yard of a woman's home in the 100 block of South Elm Street.

It's being investigated as a hate crime, because the person living at the home is black.

Officers say the cross was stolen from Saint John's Lutheran Church before it was burned.
