MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are investigating after a swastika was found etched into the facade of a Miami Beach Burger King.

The hateful symbol was found at the restaurant near 41st Street and Jefferson Avenue, Monday.

A Jewish man said he was disturbed about the fact that these types of drawings and etchings keep popping up.

“It’s shocking. It’s quite appalling, to be honest,” resident Abner Leiva said. “It’s probably just ignorance. That’s probably what it is; people that don’t know exactly what that means. That’s just horrible. I can’t believe that. It’s just sad. That’s what it is.”

As of Tuesday morning the drawing has been covered up.

This is the first time a swastika has been found since Miami Beach Police arrested 45-year-old Sean Kenna for allegedly drawing several swastikas in Miami Beach.

Kenna, who was taken into custody on Wednesday, faces seven felony criminal mischief charges.

If you have any information on who may have drawn the swastika, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
