After anti-gay and racist graffiti was found on walls throughout Pasadena, officials are on the hunt for suspects, reports CBS News. The imagery included swastikas and racial slurs, and was found on office buildings, residences and city-owned buildings along Washington Boulevard between Lincoln Avenue and El Molino Avenue.

Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard responded to the acts by saying he isn't angry; he's disappointed.
