    The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection is searching for vandals who spray-painted swastikas and other graffiti on trees and the ground at Lake Williams State Park Scenic Reserve in Lebanon.

    DEEP officials said the vandalism happened sometime over the weekend. State Environmental Conversation Police are investigating.

    “Our state parks are meant for the enjoyment of all, regardless of a person’s background,” said DEEP Communications Director Chris Collibee in a statement. “Acts of vandalism, in particular those that express hate, have no place in our society. It is disappointing that some individuals would express themselves in such a manner that causes fear amongst others.”

    Anyone with information on the vandalism is asked to contact EnCon police at 860-424-3333.
