Graffiti on the rise in Medford

Graffiti in Medford (

New graffiti is on the rise in the City of Medford.

Medford Police say they have been getting reports within the past week and are not sure what it means.

The graffiti is being found near residential areas, apartments, and the Greenway.

"We try to get this stuff cleaned up as quickly as possible and if property owners do that on their own, we would ask prior to doing that, just taking a quick picture of it," Medford Police Lt. Justin Ivens said.

He says in these types of cases, one person is usually responsible.

It is unknown if the graffiti is gang-related.
