Police Investigating Swastika Spray Paint, Including Images On A Police Car


Montgomery County Police are looking for information about spray paint vandalism in the Woodhaven neighborhood, including an image of a swatiska, anti-gay comments, profanity and other explicit images on a marked Police car. Police said officers found a marked MCP K-9 car that had been painted with black spray paint on all sides on Sunday, Feb. 17. Earlier that day, at about 3:15 a.m., officers responded to the 6700 block of Melody Lane for the report of a vandalism. Officers found a vehicle that was tagged with profanity and images of male genitalia in black spray paint. Later that morning, police said they responded to two other incidents of vandalism in the 8200 block of Wahly Drive, where there was spray paint on a light post and a large landscaping rock. The rock was painted with a swastika, said police, who in a press release characterized the vandalism as a hate crime. Detectives are asking anyone with information to contact the 2nd District Investigative Section at 301-657-0112 or email tips to BISTips@montgomerycountymd.gov. Tipsters can remain anonymous and a cash reward of $2,000 is available for information that leads to the arrest of the person or people responsible.
