Suffolk County police reported that three different Commack homes had shaving cream swastikas left outside their home over the holiday weekend.
On Sept. 1, a homeowner on Amherst Lane in Commack called police at approximately 11 p.m. after discovering someone had left a swastika painted in shaving cream on on the roadway in front of their home. At approximately the same time, a Glacier Drive resident also called police similarly reporting a swastika in shaving cream created in front of their home.
Shortly afterwards, police received a third phone call from a Glacier Lane resident at approximately 1 p.m. Sept. 2 reporting that they had found a swastika in shaving cream on the side of their mailbox.
