Police are trying to figure out who vandalized three speed cameras in Gaithersburg and one in Potomac on Oct. 29 and 30.

According to police, the three cameras in Gaithersburg are along Quince Orchard Road between Route 28 and Great Seneca Highway. Two of those cameras pertain to Montgomery County and the third is owned by Gaithersburg.

According to Montgomery County Police spokeswoman Angela Cruz, vandals sprayed the lenses of the cameras in Gaithersburg with black paint and drew swastikas on the back of two of them sometime on Oct. 30.

Cruz said that the damage would not cost the county anything because they were leased from Xerox, which is responsible for maintaining them.

The camera on River Road in Potomac was vandalized sometime on Oct. 29, Cruz said.

As of Nov. 4, she had no new information, she said.
