A three-foot tall cross wrapped in white material with the letters “KKK” written on it showed up in the driveway of a Moraga home on Wandel Drive Monday morning.

David Newhoff, the man who found the cross, was visiting his parents’ home with his wife, Tni Newhoff. Tni is black, which the Newhoffs believe is the reason for the cross.

There is no evidence yet whether this is a tasteless prank by teenagers or an action with a more racist meaning, but the Moraga Police Department and FBI are hoping to find out as both are investigating the appearance of the cross. The FBI’s hate crimes division is working on the case after the Newhoffs reported it.
