Montgomery County police continue to investigate an incident of anti-gay vandalism against one of its cruisers.

The department said in a press release that officers responded to a report of vandalism on Melody Lane in Bethesda around 3:15 a.m. on Feb. 17. They found a vehicle with profanity and “images of male genitalia” that had been spray painted onto it.

The officers also found a swastika and anti-gay comments spray painted onto a Montgomery County Police Department K-9 vehicle.

The department said officers responded to two other vandalism incidents — including a landscaping rock that had been painted with a swastika — later on Feb. 17 on Wahly Drive.

A Montgomery County Police Department spokesperson told the Washington Blade earlier on Monday there is “no update at this time” on the investigation. The MCPD is offering up to a $2,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest in the case.
