Warren County Sheriff’s Deputies say over the past couple of weeks at least 34 road signs have been stolen in the Oakland and Greenhill areas of Warren County.
Stop signs, road and street name signs, and traffic control signs have been taken. These signs not only cost taxpayers money to replace, but can kill somebody.
A few years ago, three Florida teenagers stole a stop sign from an
intersection. Three people were killed because that stop sign was
stolen. The three teenagers were sentenced to 15 years in prison.
But there is a way to return stolen signs. People who voluntarily return
street signs can do so without question or prosecution. No questions
The signs can be dropped off at the Warren County Road Department at 638 East 5th Avenue in Bowling Green. However, if authorities find stolen road signs in your possession there is no free pass.
As always, if you have information about this or any crime, call the Bowling Green-Warren County Crime Stoppers at 781-CLUE, or click here to go to their website. You could get up to $1,000 for your anonymous tip.
Crime Stoppers only wants your information, not your name. Their telephone lines are not recorded and they don’t use caller ID or *69.
