EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Officials have quickly painted over Nazi graffiti that was discovered at a former school in Eugene.

Joshua Burstein tells The Register-Guard (https://is.gd/5hSdCq ) that he and his 8-year-old daughter were outside the former Crest Drive Elementary School on Memorial Day when they noticed swastikas and other Nazi graffiti scratched into the paint of a shelter near the baseball field.

Burstein emailed the Eugene School District superintendent’s office, the Eugene Police Department and the Lane County Sheriff’s Office.

By Tuesday, fresh white paint covered the graffiti.

Eugene police spokesman John Hankemeier says the department is investigating.

The Eugene School District closed Crest Drive Elementary in 2001 because of budget cuts. It’s unknown when the vandal placed the graffiti.
