Police are searching for a man who scrawled graffiti about "Nazi Pigs" on FDNY property in Hudson Heights and Washington Heights. The first known act of vandalism occurred around midnight on Sunday, August 26th, when an unidentified man wrote "Nazi Pigs Die" in black marker on a firehouse garage door at Engine 93/Battalion 13 on West 181st Street.

The suspect was back at it again bright and early Sunday morning, when police say he wrote "Nazi pigs" and drew swastikas on the side of four FDNY ambulances and one FDNY communications van parked in front of 501 West 172nd Street.
