XENIA — The reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for damage at the county Democratic headquarters has increased.

The party is now offering $4,000, up from the original $1,000, according to party chair Doris Adams. The building in downtown Xenia was vandalized early July 16. It was the third time in 14 months the building was targeted.

The window facing East Main Street was smashed, leaving debris inside and outside the building. An unknown person was caught on a security camera running by the building with bricks in hand.

One of the organization’s volunteers who later arrived at the headquarters discovered the damage and contacted Adams and the Xenia Police Division.

“The information we have is that an attacker ran by throwing bricks through the windows,” Adams previously told Greene County News.

Due to the perpetrator’s all-black, head-to-toe clothing, nationality and/or race is unknown.

In the past, Greene County Democratic Party headquarters has had concrete thrown through its windows. The second attack had bullets being shot into the office. Those incidents occurred in May and June last year.
