What’s Your Sign? All of Them

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016 • Filed under Theft

Everybody has that moment when they realize they are unequivocally, irrevocably, irreparably in love. Personally, I knew I was hooked when my boyfriend removed the plaque “in case of fire, take stairs” from above the dorm elevator buttons and placed it tastefully on his bathroom wall. In retrospect, if I really loved him, I wouldn’t have publicized this legally dubious anecdote on a popular crime blog.

Furthermore, the mayor of a town in upstate New York may be competition. He was recently accused of stealing precisely 111 (one-hundred eleven!) road signs from the State Department of Transportation. According to HP, he simply transferred them to another district, bypassing any legal processes. Glad to see The Five Man Electrical Band still has one devoted fan.
