EAST LANSING, Mich. — East Lansing police are investigating reports of bananas being placed on sidewalks in different parts of the city that have the words "Black Lives Matter" written on them.

Police have received reports of people finding these bananas over the past day or so.

East Lansing Assistance Police Chief Steve Gonzalez told FOX 47 police aren't taking this matter lightly.

FOX 47 reached out to two East Lansing residents who have found three bananas on sidewalks and believe someone is doing this to promote racism.
