John Hopper said he went to Walmart to run some errands. It wasn’t until he was halfway home that he realized something was written on his truck.

When he got a better luck, he noticed the vandalism. He and family drove back to Walmart and called police, who were able to get the surveillance photos.

“I had a real old Trump sticker I put on there in July of ’16,” Hopper said. “It had been on there three years. I put another Trump sticker on there about a year ago. And I had two National Rifle Association stickers.”

Hopper said his truck was also keyed. He has a $1,700 bill from his body shop.

The female is described as having a medium build with dark hair and glasses. The male has a thin build with a tattoo on his right forearm, dark hair and glasses.
