SPRING LAKE, N.C. — Vandals returned to a Black-owned auto repair shop to do more damage less than a day after the owner installed security cameras.

Over the past couple weeks, Dwyane Haynesworth's business in Spring Lake has been targeted with racist graffiti. One vehicle was stolen off his lot about a month ago, he said.

Cameras were set up at the lot on Monday around 5 p.m. The security footage caught two men walking onto Haynesworth's property from the highway that night.

The two men spent several minutes rummaging through vehicles, then smashing windows of cars that were already damaged.

Spring Lake police did receive a copy of the security footage. Police didn't fingerprint any of the cars because they need permission from the owners of the cars, Haynesworth said.
