Deputies investigate swastika left on sign outside San Marcos retirement home

SAN MARCOS (KUSI) – Sheriff’s deputies Wednesday were searching for whoever drew a swastika on a street sign outside a San Marcos retirement home.

Dispatchers received a call around 8:25 p.m. Tuesday from a person who reported finding the swastika drawn in marker on a one-way-only sign outside Brookdale Senior Living on West San Marcos Boulevard, just east of South Rancho Santa Fe Road, sheriff’s Lt. Michelle Craig said.

So far, no one has been located who witnessed the act, he said.

KUSI reached out to Brookdale Senior Living and they supplied us with the following statement regarding the defacement:

“At Brookdale, all people of all backgrounds are welcomed. The graffiti of such a hateful symbol is unacceptable. We strongly stand against any act of hate and anti-Semitism. This is not who we are and what we stand for. We were swift in reporting the vandalism to the police and our maintenance crew will work to remove the graffiti.”
