KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. – The Town of Kill Devil Hills’ original elevated water tower was vandalized over the weekend, the town clerk told News 3 Monday.

Six red letters were painted on the tower, but they have since been painted over.

The town clerk said security measures were in place, and due to the site being a construction zone for a new elevated water tank, there were video cameras filming.

However, the cameras did not capture whoever painted the letters on the tower.

The Kill Devil Hills Police Department provided a photo of the tower after it had been vandalized. It is unclear if the letters spelled anything or if they were just painted at random.
