Swastika found in tunnel near Basin Rec Fieldhouse

The graffiti was discovered on Friday.

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office reported racist graffiti found in the tunnel underneath I-80 near the Basin Recreation Fieldhouse Friday.

A portion of the roughly 20 symbols painted in the tunnel depicted racist and derogatory symbols, including a swastika.

A sheriff’s deputy was flagged down by a person who noticed the graffiti on their morning run. The runner said they believe the incident occurred early in the morning, as the paint was wet and had a strong odor.

The case is under investigation, and there are no suspects yet.

In July, a spray-painted swastika was found in the bathroom of the playground in the Silver Creek Village neighborhood.

During the last school year, a swastika and a racial slur were found under a student’s desk in a Jewish teacher’s classroom.
