MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) _ A 37-year-old Medford man was arrested this week on hate crime charges.
Police believe Gary Moss was involved in a case of racial intimidation that left a cross and the letters "KKK" scorched into a west Medford home of a mixed-race couple late on Memorial Day.
The couple received another hate-filled message this week; now they say they are planning to move elsewhere in the Rogue Valley.
Community members have been dropping off flowers, cards and letters of support at their home all week, including from students at a local high school.
The two are planning to move in with relatives while they save up for a place of their own.
Moss is facing charges of intimidation, arson, possession of a destructive device and reckless endangerment.
