Herndon High School was hit with several incidents of graffiti, school officials and students discovered on Monday.

The school’s football field and nearby outdoor areas were defaced, including using anti-semitic and racial slurs and offensive sexual images.

Fairfax County Police said a morning incident in which the police helicopter was nearby the school on Bennett Street was unrelated to the graffiti incident. In the helicopter search, police were looking for a man who was involved in illegal activity, possibly drug-related, at Dranesville Road and Route 7.

Police did not catch the suspect, Officer Don Gotthardt said.

Herndon Principal William Bates says the school is working with police to catch the vandals.

“We have taken steps to begin the process to clean the surfaces that were vandalized,” he said.  “This is a criminal act and we will be working closely with law enforcement to hold the perpetrator(s) accountable. ”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.

    I guess frontal lobes aren’t so well developed for the Aryan race either.

    Anyone want to take bets on it being a hoax?

      oh no, no hoax. This is clearly a product of this high school. Notice the shoddy penmanship, the lack of care in forming proper bold letters. We have devolved from John Hancock, to drawing crooked balls and shaft on a football field! This texting generation is pathetic, a trained chimp has better hand writing.. these kids can only fill bubbles on a test with a number 2 pencil.

        Perhaps the hoaxers are smart enough not to want to look too smart.

        How dare you sir. You mis-guided description of the football field has offended me. That was clearly a rocket ship, that was losing fuel from the top of the fuselage.

          You sir are mistaken. That is clearly a space ship shooting torpedoes into space *pew pew*

    • se

      I live two minutes from the high school didn’t see the graffiti but there was definitely a helicopter circling about looking for someone in the area that day

    isnt anti semitism and racism kinda the same thing?

    • Noelle

      Not entirely… anti-Semitism is specifically racism against Jews. Racism in general can be against any race. So I guess if you were anti-Jew and say, anti-blacks, then you’d be both (just saying these as an example).

    Looks like somebody set the Wayback Machine to the year 1975, when I was a Freshman/Sophmore at HHS. Except instead of spray paint, they glued handbills to all of the lower level windows. I wonder what the teach who was a survivor the Holocaust must have thought about it.

    The more times change, the more they stay the same.

    Hope they prosecute to the fullest extent of the law when they solve this. Make an example out of whomever did this please.

  • LaureenMT

    Is there any more news on this? Has anyone been charged?
