MEDFORD, Ore. -- The Medford School District says two Medford schools have been vandalized over a period of two days.

North Medford High school's baseball complex and parts of Lone Pine Elementary were hit with spray paint "tags" on the night of March 5, according to a statement from the school district. A district employee had to spend the next day covering up the mess.

The very next night, March 6, the same vandals apparently returned to both schools. Bathroom doors, outdoor hallways, sheds, sidewalks, and playground equipment were covered in tags. Students arrived at school and encountered the scene before it could be covered up.

Security camera footage shows two masked and hooded suspects walking around the Lone Pine Elementary campus, with one of them clearly spray painting on a wall.

Lone Pine had indoor recess Wednesday while staff painted over the vandalism.

The district hopes that the security camera footage of the incident will help identify the two suspects and bring them to justice. Medford Police are investigating the incident.
