Altona RCMP are searching for suspects after a number of buildings in Gretna were spray-painted with vulgar words and symbols, including a backwards swastika.

Several town locations were hit, including the local arena, church, community centre, school, storage sheds, light fixtures and posts, stop signs and a vehicle.

Police say the graffiti — appearing in mostly black, red and green — happened overnight between August 15 and 16.

The vandal(s) may have come into contact with back spray from the cans, therefore having paint on their clothes, hands or shoes.

Anyone with information is asked to call RCMP at (204) 324-6970.
