GENERIC: police, crime scene tape

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The Clark County Republican Party said its office was broken into on Friday, Sept. 27.

According to Chairman Dan Sajdak, the front door was kicked and some papers were tossed around the office. Nothing was taken.

The party's headquarters is located on the 4900 block of Alta Drive, near South Decatur Boulevard.

A release from the Nevada Republican Party said a window was shattered and that "an unhinged opponent of the Republican Party was behind the crime."

Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael J. McDonald said:

While we respect the ongoing investigation, we can’t help but lean toward believing the hatred behind the divisive impeachment inquiry has driven leftist activists to committing an act of violence against a Republican office in Las Vegas. Since Speaker Pelosi bowed to her caucus and launched the inquiry, the Left has been completely unhinged. We hope the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department apprehends whomever is responsible as soon as possible before they commit any other acts of violence against Republicans in Southern Nevada.

About a month ago, the office on Alta Drive was vandalized. According to the Nevada GOP, an insult that was directed at President Donald Trump was "carved" onto the same door that was smashed in on Friday.

Las Vegas Metropolitan police are investigating the incident.
