(Coatesville) -- Police are trying to find out who is responsible for spray-painted graffiti including swastikas and racial epithets in several places in Chester County.

Authorities in Coatesville say the vandalism early Tuesday damaged the outside of a convenience store, a Mercedes Benz and a garage door.

The person or persons responsible then apparently went into neighboring Valley Township and left similar graffiti on street signs and the roadway.

Corporal Shawn Dowds of the Coatesville police force called it "shocking" and said "That's never happened here before."

Investigators later released a surveillance photo of a suspect.
