CARRBORO, N.C. (WNCN) — Police say that graffiti found near a Democratic campaign office in Carrboro is not believed to be tied to the firebombing of a GOP headquarters in Hillsborough.

The graffiti was on municipal parking signs and a distribution box for a free real estate shopper magazine.

“HANG THE CAPITALISTS,” one phrase read.

It’s “not uncommon” to find such graffiti in Carrboro, police Capt. Chris Atack said. The town has a reputation as among the most-left-leaning enclaves in North Carolina.

The graffiti likely went up between 6 p.m. Saturday and 5:30 p.m. Sunday, police said.
