Hate-based vandalism at Md. high school football field

NORTH POTOMAC, MD (WUSA9) - Montgomery County Police need the public’s help in identifying the driver or owner of the vehicle caught on surveillance cameras at Quince Orchard High School the night before hate-based vandalism was discovered on the school’s football field.

On Thursday, October 13, administrative staff told the School Resource Officer that the field had been vandalized. The officer found that a caustic substance was used to create a swastika and images of male genitalia on the grass.

Surveillance images captured a dark, mid-sized, four-door sedan with what appears to be a misaligned headlight driving into the school parking lot just after midnight on October 13. The car parked, a door opened. A short time later, the car can be seen leaving the parking lot.

Montgomery County Police have contacted the Jewish Community Relations Council of Greater Washington and the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.

Anyone with information about this vandalism and/or the suspect vehicle is asked to contact the 1st District Investigative Section at 240-773-6084.  For those who wish to remain anonymous, Crime Solvers of Montgomery County is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for any information that leads to the arrest of the suspect(s).  Tipsters can call Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
