Bexar County GOP Chair: Trump Office Burglary Not About Politics

It doesn’t look to be politically motivated. That’s the word from the Chairman of the Bexar County Republican Party after a break-in Wednesday Morning at offices used by the Donald Trump Campaign near Loop 410 and Harry Wurzbach.

Robert Stovall told KTSA News he has spoken with the management of the building in the aftermath of the burglary.

“A gentleman with a backpack hit a few buildings down the way. He was looking for open doors, and wandered in to this building that has high security, and he was apprehended” Stovall said, adding “He didn’t get away with anything other than trespassing in that building. He didn’t even realize he was in the Trump building.”

Still, Stovall said the recent heated rhetoric surrounding the race for President is being taken seriously in San Antonio–especially in light of a threat made this week against the Republican Party in Dallas.

“We’ve taken it (the threat) seriously. We’ve contacted our Constable offices as well as other security just to let them know we’ll have them on a quick dial” Stovall said, adding he can’t remember this level of tension in any recent political season.

In the end, Stovall said he believes cooler heads will prevail.

“In Bexar County, I even hold a higher regard (as compared with the rest of the country). We’re a very civic people here, but we want to be on alert” Stovall said.
