EDMOND, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma chapter of Council on American-Islamic relations wants state and federal law enforcement to investigate after bacon strips were found wrapped on the door handles of an Edmond mosque.

Edmond police received a report Sunday morning about bacon being left in the parking lot and entrance of the Islamic Society of Edmond. Muslims are prohibited from consuming pork products.

Police say more information about the incident will be released Monday.

The council says it also received a report about another mosque in central Oklahoma that had two windows shattered by shots likely fired from a BB gun. It didn’t specify where that mosque was.
