The east side of the Rinconada Shopping Center, 1500 Pollard Rd., has been graffitied by vandals with a black marker and red ink.
Most disturbing is anti-Semitic graffiti that has been spray-painted on center's back wall with the words, "Juden."
The complex, whose anchor business is the supermarket, contains more than 20 small businesses, including a Bank of America branch on the east side, near where some of the vandalism has occurred.
According to center employees, the graffiti has gone unclean for at least a month and fresh silver paint had been applied to certain markings.
LOCATION: East side of Rinconada Hills Center, 1500 Pollard Road.
PROBLEM: Graffiti has been spray-painted on several doors, walls.
RESPONSIBLE AGENCIES: Sign in front of center says the Meacham Oppenheimer Inc. commercial brokerage development corporation is the contact for retail space for lease at the center. It lists the number 408-378-5900 and Ryan Warner as the contact.
