Montgomery County Speed Cameras Vandalized

There's a traffic sign on Quince Orchard Boulevard near Great Seneca Highway. It warns you that a speed camera is in operation.

But that sign now sports a black swastika that's been spray-painted on. The speed camera nearby was also spray-painted, so much so that Montgomery County Police say that it has been rendered inoperable.
