The Transylvania County Sheriff’s Office is investigating vandalism on Highway 215 near the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Spray paint reading, “KKK,” “white lives matter” and “rednecks” was reported yesterday afternoon on the road near a bridge. The office says that this is racist and that "KKK" stands for the Klu Klux Klan, a white supremacist hate group. 

Chief Deputy Eddie Gunter says that there haven’t been any similar incidents this year.
