NORTH BERGEN -- A driver for a North Bergen warehouse claims he found a disturbing sight at his job Thursday morning: a swastika and “WP” scrawled across a company trailer.

“[I‘ve] lived in this state since birth,” said the man, who requested complete anonymity and declined to share his company’s name, fearing possible termination. “First time I ever saw a Nazi symbol outside [of] a textbook and the South.” Though he refused to give an exact address, he said the warehouse is located near Tonnelle Avenue.

The man said the trailer was outside a gate, waiting for a driver to pick it up. He noticed the racist marking as he drove by to start his shift, although he initially mistook it as “common graffiti.”

The swastika appeared to have been scrubbed somewhat in the past, but was still visible.

After notifying his boss, the company sent the trailer to a new location for cleaning, the man said. When asked if the company had filed a police report, he mentioned that he did not know.
