(KUTV) — Graffiti with what appears to be a swastika symbol is being investigated by Sandy police after it was discovered at Dimple Dell Park Saturday.
Sgt. Clayton Swenson with Sandy police said the building is owned by the county and has been vacant for years.
Swenson said the graffiti appears to be older and there were no fresh tracks nearby when police went to the scene. It's unknown who painted the graffiti or when the vandalism took place.
Former Rep. Patrice Arent posted a picture of the graffiti Monday.
"Sadly, I was just information that this was discovered by Sandy City police over the weekend on an addition to a Pioneer Homestead in Dimple Dell Park. #HolocaustEducation #AJC #ADL," Arent tweeted.
Utah Gov. Spencer Cox signed the Concurrent Resolution on Holocaust Education, a resolution passed by the Utah Legislature that encourages schools to teach kids about the Holocaust and genocide education.
Police do not believe there’s any immediate concern for minority communities.
Anyone with information or saw any suspicious activity in the area is encouraged to call 801-799-3000.
