LAKEWOOD, Ohio (AP) - Police say two swastikas were spray painted on a home’s driveway and another on the street in front of a nearby house in northeast Ohio.

Lakewood police say the Nazi symbols on the driveway in the Cleveland suburb were discovered Wednesday morning by the home’s residents.

Police say one of the residents reported his vehicle windows were smashed between Monday night and Tuesday morning and the swastikas were painted on the driveway between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The residents told police they don’t believe they were targeted for any specific reason.

Police found another swastika painted on the street.

The swastikas have been removed.

Police say they don’t consider the painting of the swastikas a hate crime, but are investigating it as vandalism. They had no immediate suspects.
