Two granite pillars at the Rhode Island Statehouse have been tagged with graffiti.

The Rhode Island State Police were called to the statehouse Tuesday morning to investigate.

State Police Lt. Eric LaRiviere says the pillars are on the Smith Street side of the statehouse, where the governor normally drives up. He says they were tagged sometime on Monday night with a phrase that appears to say "killing illuminati."

LaRiviere says he doesn't know what the phrase refers to, but police are investigating.

He says detectives are reviewing surveillance video.
