CLIFFVIEW PILOT SCOOP: The discovery of graffiti swastikas at a Fair Lawn park this morning may be the work of the same tagger who spray-painted “FL … D” with a crude drawing of what may be a cat’s head in an “O” between them three times in town the past three weeks, CLIFFVIEW PILOT has learned.

The symbols discovered b y a Parks Department employee at Beaver Dam Park on Saddle River Road near Brookside Avenue around 9 a.m. bear similar markings to two other graffiti incidents in Fair Lawn, CLIFFVIEW PILOT has learned:

One occurred late last month at B
erdan Grove Park on Berdan Avenue and the other last Saturday in front of a home near Tierney Place and Jerome Place.

Authorities don’t see any immediate link between the incidents and a Molotov cocktail thrown through a rabbi’s window in Rutherford this week.

Regarding this morning’s incident, Police Sgt. Richard Schultz told CLIFFVIEW PILOT :

“On a shed near the park entrance was found a swastika spray painted over the Rotarian sign that was affixed to a storage shed… On the basketball court were two more swastikas, an anarchist symbol, and the word ‘pride.’  Nearby on the court were the letters ‘FL,’ and crude picture of a cat followed by ‘PD’ all in a line.”

Police in all three incidents photographed the graffiti, which was either immediately painted over or removed.
