Graffiti on campus. Three Calabasas High School students were identified Tuesday as suspected vandals who spray-painted racist and anti-Semitic graffiti on campus, according to a KTLA report.  

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department officials said the students admitted to the vandalism in written statements given to detectives. 

The scrawls included swastikas, a picture of Hitler and words such as "whites only" and "gas chamber." The graffiti was discovered Saturday morning.

The watch commander at the Malibu/Lost Hills station, which patrols the area, declined to comment Tuesday night, saying that a news conference had been scheduled for Wednesday morning.
