PRINCESS ANNE, Md. - Late Thursday afternoon, the Princess Anne Police Department released surveillance photos of a person of interest in the investigation into vandalism of a Donald Trump campaign sign.

On Monday night, the sign was set on fire.  Then on Thursday morning, Jamie Wink, owner of Wink's Sporting Goods who put up the sign, found the campaign sign torn to pieces.

"I figured it was torn down sometime overnight but somebody messaged me and said at 5:30 p.m. yesterday it was down.  So they did it right there during the day light, with all this traffic back and forth," said Wink.

By late Thursday morning, the pieces of the sign that were tore down were gone.  Wink said the Princess Anne Police Department took those pieces as part of their investigation.

"They came and wrote a report and picked up the pieces.  They're going to get fingerprints off of them." Wink said Thursday.

Wink also said on Tuesday, the morning after the Trump campaign sign was burned, he planned on setting up more surveillance cameras on his property in case the vandal, or vandals, returned.  Wink said he captured a few still images from one of his cameras that he has also turned over to police.

Wink said despite the issues he has had over the past couple weeks with his Trump signs being torn down, stolen, or even set on fire, he is not going to let any vandals stop him from showing his support this election season.

"Oh yeah, they're going to keep going up.  And I just found out today too that there's no size restriction on political signs," Wink said.  "So, I can put up as big as I want.  I'm not going to back down from that.  I mean, it's my property, I have every right to do it."

Anyone with information about this case or who can identify the pictured person of interest is asked to call Princess Anne police at (410) 651-1822 or Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore at (410) 548-1776.
