The New London Police Department says it’s investigating complaints about a pickup truck in town with signs threatening Black Lives Matter. Multiple residents reported the truck after seeing it in a Hannaford parking lot over the weekend.

The truck has a fake skeleton attached on the front grille wearing a T-shirt with “BLM,” the acronym for Black Lives Matter. A sign on the skeleton reads: “BLM are terrorists. This one was too slow. Defund all schools that support BLM and Antifa.”

A large Trump yard sign is affixed to the truck bed.

The person who purports to own the truck said on Facebook that he is exercising his constitutional right, and boasted about the alarm the BLM skeleton has caused, including among Black residents.

Emily Cobb, New London’s police chief, said she was also communicating with the Merrimack County Attorney’s Office and the Civil Rights Unit at the state Attorney General’s Office.
