Grand Strand

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — Myrtle Beach police are investigating Monday after a photo circulated showing a “vulgar message” written in the sand on the beach, according to the Myrtle Beach Police Department.

The incident was reported at about 9 a.m. Monday, police said. When officers arrived, the tide had washed away the message. Police did not specify what the message said, but an organization aimed at stopping Anti-Semitism posted a photo to its Twitter account that showed “[expetive] Israel” written in the sand.

The police department said it doesn’t condone the behavior and shares the community’s concern.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Myrtle Beach Police Department at 843-918-1382.
