Graffiti Found in Norwich

Norwich — Several instances of anti-Semitic and racially charged graffiti showed up along two of the town’s main roads between Friday night and yesterday morning, police said.

Police were alerted yesterday morning to the graffiti, which appeared in two instances on the roadway about half a mile on either side of the intersection of Route 5 and Route 132, and one instance on the I-beam of the Interstate 91 bridge over Route 132, Patrolman Michael Scruggs said. The graffiti on the I-beam included obscenities and an anti-Semitic slur next to a swastika and knife in orange spray paint.

When reached yesterday afternoon, Scruggs was about to head out to paint over the offending graffiti, he said.

Scruggs said it was likely the same individual or individuals were involved in all three cases of vandalism.
