SPRING (FOX 26) - As children arrived at Dueitt Middle school Wednesday morning they saw a swastika and pro-President Trump graffiti painted across a storage facility on campus.
Kevin Mesa lives in the neighboring community and says the vandalism is "nothing but racism."
Reginald Blueford, who also lives in the neighboring community says "Whoever did it, they need to be in trouble."
Betty Gilbertson, a mother of three, says she thinks the vandals are kids and that education regarding hateful rhetoric, starts in the home.
"Teach your kids to do right from wrong, teach them to stand together as a community and the more that we are together as a unit, the better we will all be," said Gilbertson.
By Wednesday afternoon the graffiti was removed. Spring ISD police aren't sure who vandalized the storage facility but say officers are looking for them. Charges could range from criminal mischief to a hate crime, which is a federal offense.
"There's actually a learning lesson in this, you do something like this and then there are some consequences that come with them," said Sheleah Reed, executive director of communications for Spring ISD.
If you have any information regarding who may have done this, you're asked to contact Spring ISD police.
