Barrington Police are investigating a Swastika found on an East Bay bike path sign. The anti-Semitic symbol was burned on a sign that offers a brief history of New Meadow Neck. The incident has created a heightened sense of alarm among the Jewish community of Barrington because of its proximity- roughly one mile- from Temple Habonim. 

Barrington police are investigating an unusual drug case. On Sunday, someone left a bag of marijuana outside the Carmelite Monastery in Barrington.

Around 2:30pm Sunday a sister at the Carmelite Monastery in Barrington saw a person drop a package underneath a bush near the parking lot.  The sisters went out to investigate and were surprised to find the bag contained what appeared to be marijuana.
