Three cars at a Burtonsville, Maryland home were vandalized with what appeared to be anti-Donald Trump graffiti Wednesday morning, The Washington Post reported.
The Montgomery County Police Department said in a statement they were responded to the home at 6:25 a.m. on a call of vandalism. There, police found three cars spray painted with the words “Trump” and “racist” as well as a swastika. Another piece of graffiti was blurred out in an image of the vandalized cars provided by police.
The homeowner’s political affiliation likely was a factor into the incident, according to the statement, although it is unclear how the vandals would have been aware of them.
“There was no Trump signs or paraphernalia prominently displayed in the yard, but detectives believe, based on their initial investigation, that the homeowner’s political affiliation was well known without the need for signs being posted,” Officer Rick Goodale said, according to WTOP.
