Police are asking for help figuring out who spray-painted “racially-charged and anti-law enforcement sentiments” onto state vehicles and an office in North Carolina over the weekend.

Greenville police posted photos of the vandalism to Facebook on Tuesday.

The images show where “black power” and anti-police language were painted onto four N.C. Department of Public Safety vehicles overnight Sunday.

The Greenville Probation and Parole office where the cars were parked, at 214 Pitt St., was also vandalized.
