(La Porte County, IN) - Police are trying to determine who stole dozens of stop signs in La Porte County. According to the Sheriff’s office, 36 stop signs were taken over the weekend in the northeast part of the county.
Captain Derek Allen says it’s no laughing matter because stop signs are used to control traffic and traffic accidents could occur where signs are missing. Police say the suspects, if caught, could face criminal charges and be sued if a missing stop sign causes a motor vehicle collision.
The signs are in the process of being replaced.
