San Antonio police are investigating anti-Semitic graffiti that was found spray-painted on about 30 buildings and vehicles.

Investigators say the vandalism was discovered Wednesday in a neighborhood near an Orthodox synagogue.

Howard Feinberg, who's on the board of Congregation Rodfei Sholom, says members noticed the damage after morning prayers.

The graffiti included images of swastikas and references to the Ku Klux Klan.

Police did not immediately announce any arrests.

The synagogue, according to its website, has about 300 families as members.
