PORTLAND – On Thursday morning, a handful of Vancouver residents woke up to find that their cars, trucks and even houses had been tagged by graffiti overnight.

Gang signs and swastikas were spray-painted on vehicles and doors.

Antonio Arana, who has a white van he uses for work, walked outside Thursday and saw his van covered in gang tags.

“It says ‘Crips’ so I think it’s a gang thing, but I’m not sure,” Arana said.

Another woman found her car tagged in three places. One of the spray-painted signs was of a swastika.

She filed a police report, but many others didn’t since they had to drive their cars and trucks, covered in evidence, to work Thursday.

Police said that makes finding the vandals difficult, and asked anyone who was a victim of the overnight graffiti spree to contact the Clark County Sheriff's Office.
