October 10, 2018

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina are trying to find whoever spray-painted racially charged and anti-law-enforcement sentiments on an office and several state vehicles.

A post on the Greenville Police Department’s Facebook page says someone used black spray paint to write on North Carolina Department of Public Safety vehicles overnight Sunday.

News outlets report that the police department posted images of the words “black power” and insults toward police painted on several vehicles.

State Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Sonja Bennett says the four damaged vehicles have been sent to local body shops for repair and operations have not been affected.

Police are offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest.
