Swastika graffiti was found spray-painted on two Jewish-owned businesses in New Jersey in a week.

Patch.com reported that security footage showed two people getting out of a vehicle and walking toward a trailer behind a Jewish-owned business in Jackson, N.J., on Feb. 13, where the vandalism occurred. The trailer was on the business’ property.

According to The Lakewood Scoop, the graffiti also included the words “white power” and the number 13, which is a symbol for the white supremacist prison gang Aryan Circle, according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL).

One person, 40-year-old Virginia Mailloux, has been arrested in connection with the vandalism. The other person in the video remains at large.

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat, tweeted: “I’m appalled by this act of anti-Semitism. Just this week, my Administration was in Lakewood working with the Orthodox Jewish Chamber to address security. We will hold those behind this responsible and rise above this hate.”

Additionally, on Feb. 20, swastikas were found on several trash cans, a utility pole and the fence on the property of a Jewish-owned business in Howell, N.J., according to the Scoop. The words “F— Jews” and “n—–s” were also found spray-painted on the fence. Neither business has been publicly identified.

“Deeply disturbed swastikas and words ‘white power’ spray painted on Jewish-owned business in #JacksonNJ,” ADL New York/New Jersey tweeted. “And more swastikas found in #HowellNJ days later. This hatred has no place in our communities and we continue to work to make #NJ #NoPlaceForHate.”
