Vandals leave "KKK" and "white power" spray painted on cars and church

GALVESTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Vandals struck overnight leaving behind racist and profane words on cars and a church building in Galveston.

Residents on Biovu Drive woke up Monday morning to find "KKK," "white power" and other obscenities spray painted on cars and inside a building under construction at New Life Fellowship.

"Hopefully we weren't targeted because we are a church," said Senior Pastor David Gomez.

Racist graffiti spray painted on cars and church in Galveston.

Diana Killen's car was tagged with "KKK." She and her husband contacted Eyewitness News hoping the publicity leads to arrests.

"It's bad enough my car got it, but to desecrate a church? That's just wrong," Killen said.

Pastor Gomez said they intend to put up a surveillance camera for the duration of construction. He has lingering concerns and questions.

"For them to have the audacity to come and do it to our building, who would do this?" Gomez asked.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Galveston Police Department.
