Houses in a subdivision in neighboring Edwardsville, Illinois, were also ravaged with swastikas. The police suspect an adult man in both incidents. The Edwardsville police have released the suspect's surveillance video.
The gravestones were injected sometime between midnight and 7 o'clock on Saturday morning.
Vandalism is considered institutional vandalism and possibly hate crime, White said.
The cemetery is not sectarian, according to the Sunset Hill website.
In Chicago, the windows of a synagogue were smashed and swastikas were put on the front door, and in New York, swastikas and Nazi slogans were scrawled in a subway car.
