Palm Coast, FL – Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) is investigating why at least three homes and one truck in Palm Coast were sprayed with graffiti having what could be considered racist messaging.

The incidents occurred on August 6 and August 8 in the R section of Palm Coast on Rocking Horse Dr. and Rolling Sands Dr. A neighbor on Rolling Sands Dr. reported some of the graffiti to police.

On August 6 at approximately 11:06 AM, the garage door of a home at 15 Rolling Sands Dr. was tagged with black and blue spray paint with the words “Stay White” and a letter “R” with a three-point crown and a heart above it. According to the police report, the owner lives out-of-state in Massachusetts. More graffiti was found on the left, outside wall of the home.

At around 11:53 AM that day, police also responded to 43 Rolling Sands Dr. after reports of blue graffiti with the letter “R” and a three-point crown with a heart above it. That home is currently bank owned by PennyMac Loan Service in California. No other damage was observed. A white F-150 truck was found that same day with the same type of graffiti on Rolling Sands Dr.

On August 8, a home at 62 Rocking Horse Ln. had been spray-painted with what officers say might be “white power” symbols . The graffiti consisted of a circle with a cross in the middle, “666” along the outside of the circle, and a “W” and “P” inside of the circle.

“Of course, they are actively investigating, and they have increased patrols in the area,” says Brittany Kershaw, Public Affairs Officer for FCSO. At this time, however, there are no leads and no suspects in this case.

“I’ve been told that we don’t consider it a hate crime or anything like that. It probably was just bored kids, but we can’t rule anything out,” says Kershaw.
