Vandals Spray-Paint Swastiska Near Sandy Springs School

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) - Police are looking for the culprits who spray-painted a swastika near the Epstein School in Sandy Springs.

Authorities said a teacher found the anti-Semitic symbol on a sidewalk early Thursday.

School officials said the vandalism could be connected to opposition over a proposal to expand the Jewish school's campus.

The offensive graffiti was removed.

Sandy Springs Police said whoever is responsible could be charged with a hate crime.

A neighborhood association has offered a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.
