Since March 2022, there has been an increased number of damage to property. Walls in Burglengenfeld were repeatedly sprayed with lettering. These often dealt with the Russian war against Ukrain and, according to police, were partly “using anti-Semitically wording”. The police have already been able to identify four suspects.
In recent weeks, however, the number of sprayed walls has risen again. On November 25th, police arrested another suspect who set fire to a “School without Racism – School with Courage” sign outside a high school. It is a 48-year-old German citizen from the city area. During the search of his home, the police were able to seize a large amount of evidence, including about 240 spray cans and graffiti templates. According to their own statement, the police “cannot assign him to a clear political background”.
