Swastika found graffitied on Bloomington sign Monday morning

A stone sign was found spray painted with a red swastika around 8:40 a.m. Monday. 

Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Dana Cole said the graffiti was on the east side of a stone sign at the intersection of North Grandview Drive and East 10th Street.

Cole said the graffiti was painted sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning. The graffiti comes a week after Ku Klux Klan flyers were found distributed around Bloomington. 

People living in the area told officers they did not see anyone graffiti the sign. BPD does not have any suspects at this time.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated the swastika symbol was found on a stop sign. It was found on a stone sign at the entrance of the Grandview Hills neighborhood. The IDS regrets this error.
