U.S. Park Police are looking for a man they suspect is responsible for racist vandalism and damage at some parks in the D.C. area.

Police say 50-year-old Ronald Edward Bost, Jr. is wanted for vandalism and damage to government property at parks in Washington and along the George Washington Memorial Parkway. There's an active warrant for his arrest in the District.

According to the National Park Service, Bost pled guilty to similar vandalism in 2006 that included writing pro-Nazi, anti-Semitic terms in parks. Police say Bost has tattoos on both hands, including faded swastikas on his left knuckles. Authorities are asking the public for tips, but say not to approach Bost if he's seen. They say he's been known to frequent the National Mall, libraries in Virginia's Arlington County, the Iwo Jima Memorial and the GW parkway.
