RCMP

The RCMP are investigating an incident of racist graffiti in Berwick as a hate crime.

Late Wednesday morning, Kingston RCMP were alerted to an offensive word that had been written on the road outside of a person's Maple Avenue home.

The Mounties have not disclosed what the word was.

It's believed the graffiti was done in the overnight hours, between 9 pm on July 2 and 11 am on July 3.

Investigators have already spoken to neighbours for information about possible suspects, and are now reaching out to the public for help.
