Spring Township police are investigating graffiti found Monday morning on sidewalks, fire hydrants and road signs in Pleasant Gap.
Police suspect that two people did the spray painting between 12:30 a.m. and 2 a.m., Spring Township police Detective Dale Moore said. Two colors of paint were used, white and beige. One paint can was recovered by police.
Some of the images were of a sexual nature, and a swastika was painted on a Spruce Street sidewalk, police said. Some of the graphic images appeared on sidewalks near a day care center and a church. A speed limit and red light ahead sign were also defaced on South Main Street, police said.
The perpetrators could face criminal mischief charges, as well as ethnic intimidation if it is determined the swastika was directed at someone specifically, Moore said.
