The East Providence police department is rewarding $5,000 to anyone with any new information about an arson and hate crime to a local family four years ago.  

There were swastikas and racial slurs tagged on the side of the mixed-race family's home.

At the time of the crime, there were children from the ages of 7-15 sleeping inside.

Police say that everyone in the house had gotten out safely.

Anyone with any additional information is advised to contact police or the state fire marshal's office.
