Police Asking for Public’s Assistance in Vandalism/Hate Crimes in Bethesda

CrimeAlertDetectives from the 2nd District have been investigating a series of vandalisms that occurred during the overnight hours from February 16 to February 17 in the Woodhaven neighborhood of Bethesda.

On February 17 at approximately 3:15 a.m., officers responded to the 6700 block of Melody Lane for the report of a vandalism.  Officers located property and a vehicle that were painted with black spray paint.  Profanity and images of male genitalia were painted on the vehicle.  Also in the area, officers located a marked MCP K-9 vehicle that had been vandalized.  All sides of the police vehicle were painted with black spray paint.  In addition to profanity and explicit images, the suspects painted a swastika and anti-gay comments on the vehicle.

Later that morning, officers responded to two other incidents of vandalism ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­in the 8200 block of Wahly Drive where suspects spray painted a light post and a large landscaping rock. The rock was painted with a swastika.
