DELANO, Calif. (KGET) — Nazi clothing, flags and stickers were found inside the home of a man accused of repeatedly vandalizing a Delano church by spray-painting a racial slur on windows, signs and chairs.

A Delano police investigator said the Nazi-related items led him to believe the actions of Kyle Sison may have been “based on his hate towards the Black community,” according to newly-filed court documents.

Sison, 33, is accused of vandalizing New Allen Chapel AME Church in incidents that occurred July 17, Aug. 30 and Nov. 18. He’s charged with a hate crime of vandalizing a church, vandalism with damage of $400 or more and damaging a property to violate civil rights.

Sison has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for a hearing on Monday.

A church member estimated the damage caused Nov. 18 would cost $10,000 to repair, according to Delano police reports filed in Superior Court. A detective wrote that a racial slur had been spray-painted “throughout the entire church.”

Surveillance footage captured the vandal, who wore a white mask and glasses. Police believed, upon reviewing the footage, the suspect had walked to the church.

Upon speaking with Sison, who lives within a mile of and on the same street as the church, investigators noticed a close resemblance to the suspect seen in the footage, according to the documents. Additionally, Sison appeared to wearing clothing similar to what the suspect wore in one of the incidents, the reports say.

In addition to Nazi-related items, police found a homemade hydrogen gas device, according to the reports. The sheriff’s Bomb Squad determined it wasn’t dangerous in its current state.

In a lengthy interview with Delano police, Sison talked about spending a few years in Alaska, going to Bakersfield College and living with his grandparents in Delano. He denied harboring racist feelings toward anyone.

Shown the surveillance footage, Sison said the person pictured wasn’t him.

“It looks like me,” Sison said according to the documents. “That’s not me.”

A detective says, “It’s pretty, pretty clear that that’s you in those videos.”

Sison agreed the person wore clothing similar to his but said everything he buys is mass-produced and anyone can purchase it. He then gave a reason as to why the suspect so closely resembled him.

“But I’m telling you that’s gotta be a clone or something like that,” he said according to the documents. “That might not be like, you know, what you want to hear.”

He went on to tell the detective technology exists to grow body parts with “regenerative resurrection medicine,” documents said, and that a person can be grown from a body part, “even if it’s just a finger or a toe or something.” Sison said he had a missing body part and the clone was grown from that, according to the reports.

Sison later contradicted himself and said he shares “most people’s common racism” in that he believes in “my people” — Filipinos and whites, according to the documents.

Asked about the Nazi-related items, Sison said he finds neo-Nazis “fascinating,” the reports say. Some support only white people, but others are more pragmatic and don’t bother other races as long as white people have space for themselves, Sison told the detective.

He recommended he be placed in protective custody when police take him to jail, documents said.
