A teenager was arrested Tuesday in connection with graffiti found scrawled in Greenlawn, including a swastika on a tree, Suffolk police said.
The tree with the anti-Semitic symbol and other graffiti, as well as profanity on at least one street sign were spotted at Grafton Street and Taylor Avenue, police said.
A teenager, 17, was charged with making graffiti, including the profane words, but not for the swastika, police said. Police declined to release the suspect's name, citing the ongoing investigation.
Bias crime detectives are investigating.
Officers Tuesday morning could be seen cutting off the top of the corner street sign to preserve as evidence.
