Large amounts of vandalism including "swastikas and depictions of Adolf Hitler," were found by school maintenance workers around 9:00 a.m. Saturday at Calabasas High School, reports the L.A. Times. The hate graffiti reportedly also "included attacks on blacks and Latinos."

The school, located on the 22000 block of Mulholland Highway, has repaired the damage. The incident, which is being handled as a felony vandalism and as a hate crime, is believed to have occurred sometime between 4:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday morning.

Notes KTLA:

When deputies arrived onto the scene, they found that the vandalism was in fact Nazi Swastikas as well as a picture of Hitler and the words "whites only," "gas chamber," and the names "Walker" and "Camacho," reportedly names of teachers, according to the statement.

Calabasas mayor James Robert Bozajian remarked, "It's a particularly disgusting time to do it because it's a holy week for many religions." There are no reported witnesses but clues found on campus may lead to the suspect or suspects, reports KTLA. The school has put out a $2,000 reward for information regarding the crime.
