Racist Graffiti Popping Up in Arlington

At least two cases of racist vandalism have been reported in Crystal City in the past two days. The graffiti, which has contained references to Hitler, may be linked to a string of incidents being investigated by U.S. Park Police.

Park Police have issued a warrant for 51-year-old Ronald Edward Bost, Jr., who they believe is behind racist screeds found on the George Washington Parkway and in several D.C. parks.

Bost has been known to frequent Arlington County libraries, police said.

Also today, at least two cases of vandalism were reported on the W&OD trail. It’s not known at this time whether those incidents are related to the Bost case.
