FDNY probes defaced image of Obama at firehouse

(AP) - Officials say a defaced image of PresidentBarack Obama has been removed from a Bronx firehouse storage locker- and now they're trying to find out how it got there.

First, someone put the president's stenciled image on thelocker, with the word "believe." Then "hustler" was added ontop of it, in big red letters. Below that, someone scrawled "AllahAkbar," meaning "God is great," in black ink.

A police sketch of the Unabomber was on the other side of thelocker.

Department rules bar the display of vulgar or offensive materialin the firehouse.

FDNY spokesman Jim Long said today the matter is underinvestigation.
