STAUNTON, Va. - A Virginia sheriff's office is investigating after graffiti that included swastikas and racial slurs was found on a bridge.

Augusta County Sheriff's Office Lt. Aaron Le Veck tells The News Leader a Department of Transportation crew will remove the graffiti. It was on a bridge in Staunton and included a swastika in the middle of the road.

The graffiti was reported Sunday. According to the newspaper, that's less than a week after recruitment flyers for the Ku Klux Klan were distributed in Staunton, Waynesboro, Augusta County and other areas of the Shenandoah Valley.
