EDWARDS, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

While things are heating up on the presidential campaign trail, investigators believe a giant Trump sign on the I-20 frontage road near Edwards was actually set on fire overnight.

"I think they're heathens," said sign owner E.L. Martin. "That's a fact cause people don't do things like that. You don't hurt other people to get back at them for the way you feel. It's not right."

Martin bought the huge sign and draped it over a bus on his property to let everyone who drives by know who he is supporting in the presidential race.  The bus holding up the sign, was also heavily damaged.

"I probably lost $12,000.00 with damage to the bus," added Martin. "But that's in material. What it costs don't matter to me. It's the principal of it."

Martin says the vandals only fueled his support for Trump, and has this message for whoever damaged his sign.

"Need to bring em out here and hook on to a mule chain and whoop their ass for about a month," said Martin.

Police are searching for those that lit the sign on fire.They could be facing vandalism and possibly arson charges.
