Police at Texas A&M University have concluded that an alleged hate crime at the school was staged by the student who reported it.

Isaih Martin, a senior at A&M, told police in June that he had found racist notes on his car, KBTX-TV reports. Martin informed police that he had found three handwritten notes on the windshield of his car that said "You don't belong here," "All lives matter," and "n***er."

Martin also posted a photo of the notes to his Twitter account.

However, police are now saying that a surveillance camera from a nearby pool shows Martin placing the notes on his car. He then reportedly steps back and took a picture of them.

Per the official police report:

Martin immediately walks to the passenger side of his vehicle, but does not open any doors. Martin is seen toward the front of his vehicle. A brief white speck is seen from about mid-torso of Martin moving toward his vehicle. Another white speck is seen near his chest area. Martin is then seen stepping back and onto the sidewalk in front of his vehicle, most likely taking photos and videos. He then approaches his vehicle again on the passenger side and remains there for a few moments. He is then seen walking around the front of his vehicle. Martin then enters the driver`s door and drives away a few moments later. The total time spent at his vehicle is 1 minute, 15 seconds.
