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.

The rock was painted with a swastika, said police, who in a press release characterized the vandalism as a hate crime.
