North Carolina

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WNCT)

Wilmington police are asking for the public’s help to identify and find a woman they say was caught on video throwing paint on Confederate statues on July 4th.

A post on the Wilmington Police Facebook page said the vandalism happened at 3:00 a.m. on Thursday, at the corner of 3rd and Market and 3rd and Dock Streets.

Surveillance cameras captured video of a woman throwing orange paint onto one Confederate statue, and, off-camera, police say she also threw paint on another Confederate statue.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity is asked to call Wilmington Police at 910-343-3609.
