Suspect in Vogel Plaza Menorah Vandalism Facing More Charges

This is an update to our previous article regarding two acts of vandalism against a light-up seasonal Menorah at Vogel Plaza.

Through the investigation, Medford Police officers developed probable cause to arrest Isaiah Cleveland for the second Vogel Plaza vandalism incident to a large light-up Menorah display reported on 12/27/22.

Upon review of available video footage, officers were able to determine it was the same male from the previous vandalism.

On December 30, 2022, Cleveland was located and once again arrested, this time being charged with Criminal Mischief 1. He was lodged at the Jackson County Jail.

At the time of the original arrest, the suspect gave no indication that his actions were antisemitic. This case is now in the hands of the Jackson County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.

No additional information was released by officials at this time.

All suspects are considered innocent until any/all charges are proven true against them in a court of law.
