Vandalism strikes Leland community

Residents of a Leland community woke up Wednesday morning to some vandalism. "Stop Obama" was spray painted in three places. One on a vacant home's For Sale sign, one on a stop sign and another at the entrance to the Birch Creek community. Residents said the neighborhood is normally very quiet and safe, so news of the vandalism was surprising. “It was kind of mind boggling because the community is so diverse and there's so many good people,” said Birch Creek resident Rochon McDuffie. “I've got great neighbors out here, and it just blew my mind that someone would write something like that.” The chief of the Leland Police Department said the department did not receive any calls from residents about the vandalism, but officers would go check it out. Because it involved the president’s name, the vandalism would be mentioned to Secret Service, but most likely the culprit would face a random act of damage to property charge if caught.
