Police seek help on sign vandalism
- Published: February 23, 2017
Yellow Springs police are seeking information on the recent vandalism of 27 stop signs in the village. In most cases, the words “Stop Trump” and “RZR” were painted on the signs, with most located on the east side of town south of Dayton Street and north of Birch St. Many were in the vicinity of the Antioch College campus, as well as on Allen and President streets.
Because the paint covers up part of the sign’s surface area, the signs no longer possess the reflective quality they need to be visible to drivers in all weather conditions, according to Officer Mark Charles. Consequently, they are considered unsafe and all of the vandalized signs are currently being replaced, at a cost of thousands of dollars to the Village.
If anyone has information regarding the vandalism, they are encouraged to talk with police. As always, those bringing information will remain anonymous. Those with information should contact Officer Charles at 937-767-7202, ext. 568.
