BELLMORE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A school on Long Island was vandalized with racial graffiti this past weekend, and police have launched a search for the culprit.

Sometime between Friday and Monday, someone or several people vandalized the outside walls of the Martin Avenue Elementary School, at 2616 Martin Ave. in Bellmore, with paint marker, Nassau County police said.
