Suffolk police search for Islip High School vandals

Suffolk police are searching for the person or persons responsible for vandalizing Islip High School early Friday morning.

School officials say custodians found a large swastika and the letters KKK spray painted across the entrance to the school around 6:30 a.m. The graffiti was immediately covered and was washed off a few hours later.

Custodians say the gate was not forcibly opened and they have no idea how the incident happened. Police believe the perpetrator jumped a locked fence sometime after 11 p.m. Thursday. Anyone with information is asked to contact police.
