Swastika graffiti investigated in Silver Spring
Swastikas and the number "666" have been spray painted repeatedly in recent days on one homeowner's fence and another's mailbox in the Stonecrest neighborhood, Montgomery County said Friday.
Detectives are investigating the incidents described by the department as "hate-based graffiti vandalisms." On Sunday, a homeowner in the 12900 block of Ruxton Road reported that "666" and a swastika had been painted on his fence, police said.
After the graffiti was removed, the fence again was vandalized on with the same writings Tuesday through Thursday. A swastika was painted Monday on a home mailbox in the 12700 block of Turquoise Terrace, police said.
