TRI CITY, Ore. – Deputies responded to South Umpqua High School on Thursday, April 19, 2018, for a report of vandalism in a girl’s bathroom. The vandalism was non-specific graffiti on a bathroom wall that made reference to a threat against the school on Friday, April 20, 2018.

Deputies responded and are conducting a criminal investigation in cooperation with the South Umpqua school district. Several interviews were conducted and at this time the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office does not feel there is a credible threat. However, an increased law enforcement presence will be observed on the South Umpqua High School campus on Friday.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office at 541-440-4471 or by email at dcso.pio@co.douglas.or.us.
