GOP offices in three states were vandalized or burglarized during the past two weeks, and police had only made one arrest as of Wednesday morning.
An Indiana Republican Party office was vandalized last week after someone tossed two bricks through the window, officials said Monday. That news comes just a day after a Republican headquarters in North Carolina was firebombed. The Sunday blaze injured none, however, a perpetrator also spray painted the message “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” on a nearby building.
An office in San Antonio used by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign was burglarized on Wednesday, FOX29 reported. Police detained a suspect around 5:30 a.m. and authorities believe that person targeted other buildings in the area, too.
Signs for Trump and Rep. Todd Young were hanging in the window of the Delaware County office on Oct. 8 when landscaping bricks were tossed through the windows, shattering them, officials said in a Facebook post.
Officials said it would cost about $1,200 to replace the window and those interested in helping defray the cost could donate online.
Delaware County Sheriff Ray Dudley said there have been numerous reports of campaign signs being stolen from yards in Yorktown and Mount Pleasant Township, Fox 59 reported.
Dudley said the reports were being taken seriously and that removing signs from homeowners’ yards could merit prosecution under the Indiana criminal code.
