Teens charged for Klan graffiti



Staff Writer


Two Lincoln County teens found themselves behind bars last week after deputies accused them of spray painting racial slurs in front of a property located along a popular area highway.

Both Tommy Blake Cantrell, 17, of 5764 Hoover-Elmore Road in Vale, and Brandon Dell Williams, 16, of 2349 Mintew Circle in Lincolnton, received a charge for disorderly conduct on Wednesday, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies placed each suspect under a $3,000 secured bond.

The duo allegedly spray-painted a female Ku Klux Klan member along N.C. 182 in front of a house where a schoolmate lives, a report stated.

Deputies declined to detail the explicit drawing but did note it was “racial” in nature.

“The drawings were racial; the words were very racial,” Lt. Tim Johnson, head of criminal investigations, told the Times-News.

 Each teen has since been released from the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center.
