“We’ve had this problem before,” District Two Magistrate Barry Littlejohn said. “We’re working on getting them replaced. We keep putting them back, but they keep disappearing.”
Littlejohn said there are about four or five signs in his district that are continually stolen. This can be a dangerous situation, especially if emergency services need to respond to a residence and can’t find it because the road signs are stolen. He hoped that those who stole the signs would return them.
“Those road signs are there for a purpose,” said Littlejohn. “The children of the community … need to understand that they could be endangering someone’s life taking those.”
There are a lot of people in the area with rental properties, and a lot of people come here on vacations, and sign thefts can cause problems for both, said Littlejohh.
