MEDFORD, Ore. -- The Medford Police Department (MPD) confirms that someone broke three windows at the Jackson County Republican Party office between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

"The windows appeared to have been struck with an object, but no evidence of what was used was left behind," MPD said.

"It's frustrating to have someone sneak up in the darkness to express an opinion." said Robin Lee. She is the Vice Chair of the Jackson County Republican Party. Medford Police say two days before the event, a live camera feed was torn off the front of the building, but was not reported at the time.

"It's just a hate crime, it's just an expression of rage someone apparently dosen't care for Trump." said Lee. She says the community support has been very helpful. "Yesterday (Wednesday), we had a couple of business people that supply security systems step up and offer assistance." Now in two days the office will have a new high tech security system.

The estimated value of the damage is $4,000.

On July 3rd, some of the same windows were damaged. In both cases, there appears to be no entry into the business and no property taken.

"I've been volunteering here for 5 years. I've never felt insecure. I feel a little bit unsettled, but I think I'm ready to be more helpful and more compassionate about situations much more serious than my own." said Lee. 

These cases remain under investigation, and MPD has not indicated that suspects have been identified in either one.
