The wife of a Waco ISD officer said their door was spray-painted with an anti-police message on Christmas Eve.

Rachel Martinez who lives with her husband at Tennyson Arms Apartments in the 5100 block of Tennyson Dr. said they discovered the door spray painted with the words “die pig” on Saturday morning. They think someone may have written that between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m.

“It scares you because you don’t know if it’s someone trying to be funny or some kid thinking trying to be funny or if someone is out to hurt law enforcement,” Rachel Martinez said.

The couple has been staying with Martinez’ parents because of the threats.

"It's scary knowing and walking around the complex not knowing who did it, if it was someone here or if someone randomly came and left or what,” Martinez said.

According to Martinez, this is the third incident they have been a target of in four months.

She said in September someone burglarized their apartment, which may have been unlocked, and stole money. Last month, she said they received an offensive note.

She said they reported the burglary and the vandalism to police.

Due to the three incidents, the Martinez want to move out of Tennyson Arms Apartments. They have requested management to end their lease early without paying for a fee.

The owner of the complex is expected to make that determination soon after receiving the police reports from the two incidents.

The management one the latest one was not been completed yet.

Waco ISD released a statement after this incident.

"Waco ISD does not condone any violence or threats of violence against anyone, and in this case the target happens to be one of our fine police officers and his family. We support our officers and all men and women in uniform and hope those responsible will be found and held accountable.”

News Channel 25 requested the two police reports on Wednesday from Waco Police, which could take up to 10 days to be released.
