According to NYPost,

Police said he used red spray paint to scrawl, “F–k you Jew,” and “Jews ain’t s–t” on cars, and buildings, including a Jewish school, the B’nos Zion Bobov yeshiva.

Setiawan, 36, had worked at the 69th Precinct in Canarsie until he resigned in 2007.

He was busted Sunday morning at his Queens home after cops tracked him down using surveillance videos that showed his face and the license plate of his car.

After spending some nine hours in the 66th Precinct station house in Brooklyn, Setiawan, looking disheveled in a hooded sweat shirt and jeans, was moved to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
