VALRICO, Fla. — Authorities in Hillsborough County are searching for vandals who painted graffiti on more than 20 homes over the weekend.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Debbie Carter says the vandals appear to have defaced homes in three neighborhoods.

The incidents, which seem to be gang-related, happened Saturday night. The vandals reportedly spray-painted garage doors, some driveways and a couple of license plates or car bumpers.

A member of a local homeowners association says the graffiti contained foul language or a swastika.
