Scarborough police are investigating three incidents of vandalism reported at two homes over the weekend, including the painting of a swastika and profanity at one.

A property on Jameco Mill Road was defaced with the Nazi symbol sometime Sunday night, said Scarborough police Detective Sgt. Rick Rouse. The same home was egged Friday, Rouse said.

Another home also was egged Sunday on Coulthard Farms Road, Rouse said. A neighbor reported that the egging may have involved a silver-colored sedan occupied by three young men, possibly teenagers, Rouse said.

The graffiti were painted near the bottom of a sloping driveway in a cul-de-sac on Jameco Mill Road. The well-kept home, with a basketball hoop in the driveway, is part of a tidy development between Gorham Road and Route 1. No one answered the door Monday afternoon, and a neighbor picking up mail declined to answer questions.

The perpetrators, if caught, would face criminal mischief charges, which could be elevated to a Class C felony if the damage costs more than $2,000 to repair.

Anyone with information about the vandalism is urged to call Scarborough police at 207-883-6361, or the anonymous crime tip hotline at 207-730-GET’M (4386).
