Noose found dangling from roof of Orange County union building

Oc Employees of the Orange County Labor Federation arrived to work early Friday to find a noose dangling from the roof of their building in the city of Orange.

Police took custody of the noose and said union officials could not connect it to any ongoing dispute or negotiation.

The federation represents more than 90 local unions.

With no individual targeted or specific motive involved “at this point it doesn’t rise to the level of a crime,” said Orange Police Lt. Dave Hill.
