Two Medford schools hit by graffiti

Medford police are seeking information on recent vandalism at Lone Pine Elementary and North Medford High School.

"Not only does this require the expense of district resources, but compromises our students’ sense of safety," Medford School District spokeswoman Natalie Hurd said in a press release Wednesday.

Vandals used spray paint to tag North's baseball complex and several surfaces at Lone Pine Monday night, the release said.


After district employees cleaned up the majority of the graffiti, two suspects went to Lone Pine at around midnight Wednesday, according to security camera footage. They spray-painted doors, walls, outdoor hallways and playground equipment, among other areas.

The spray-painted images include several pairs of eyes, snakes and messages such as, "We are watching," and "Remember kids, DNA is evolution's memory."

Security camera footage from March 7 showed one of the suspects wearing a dark mask while tagging exterior doors. Both suspects in the videos were wearing sweatshirts and sweatpants.

Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call the Medford Police Department tip line at 541-618-1TIP (1847); or on the web at (select the Medford, Oregon Police Department) or through the free "Tip Submit" app available for Android or Apple.
