Stickers Prompt Intimidation Charges Against Cary Man

WRAL, July 27, 2021

A Cary man is charged with North Carolina’s version of a hate crime after putting racial stickers on cars and in a bathroom at Mexican restaurants around town last week, police said.

The “I (heart) being white” stickers were found on cars parked outside the On the Border restaurant at 1102 Walnut St. and inside a bathroom at Totopos Street Food and Tequila, at 1388 Kildaire Farm Road, on Saturday.

John Michael Kantz, 60, was charged with two counts of ethnic intimidation. His bond was set at $500, but police said he remains in custody.
