Santa Ana police and Governor Jerry Brown's own security detail are taking the graffiti threats of killing Brown on Valentine's Day very seriously, according to LA Now.

The first graffiti threat was discovered Thursday on a block wall on South Greenville Street near Alton Avenue. It includes a Nazi swastika and the phrase: "We gonna kill Gov. Brown 2/14/11" in black paint. Hours later, another threat was spotted by Santa Ana police. In red paint with a black swastika, it says: "26 more days 4 Brown."

Though investigators are examining any possible links to earlier graffiti in the area that threatened to kill Catholics, they currently have "no clue, other than it's Valentine's Day" about who is responsible for the graffiti and their true intent. It is considered a "terrorist threat."

Authorities are checking Brown's schedule to see if he planned to be in Santa Ana on Valentine's Day.
