SANDWICH, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — An investigation is underway in Sandwich after a resident's house was tagged with a racial slur and symbol, according to Sandwich Police.

In a Facebook post, the department says they responded on Saturday to a home on Race Lane in South Sandwich. The homeowner reported coming home and discovering it on her garage.

A Swastika was painted on the side of the garage, and it is believed the graffiti was painted in the overnight hours, Friday into Saturday.

Officers spoke with neighbors and canvased the area. The scene was also photographed and processed for evidence by the Barnstable Bureau of Criminal Investigations.

The victim told police it may have been done by someone they know over another issue, and it may not be racially motivated. The incident is still under investigation and police say, it appears to be an isolated incident.

"The Sandwich Police Department promises a diligent investigation to identify the perpetrator and their motive," said Sandwich Police on Facebook.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
