Cumberland sheriff: 84 street signs stolen in Cumberland County


The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the theft of 84 street signs from 42 intersections earlier this month.

The signs were taken on Aug. 12 and Aug. 13, the Sheriff’s Office said in a release.

The signs were removed from intersections in the Eastover area to the Wade-Stedman area, the Sheriff’s Office said. The Sheriff’s Office was alerted when it responded to a larceny call at the Cumberland County Sign Shop on Aug. 16, the release said.

It cost an estimated $20,000 to replace the signs, the release said.

“The sign shop worked diligently and swiftly to replace all the stolen signs from the reported locations,’’ the Sheriff’s Office said in the release.

The Sheriff’s Office is asking people who live in the area where the signs were taken to check their surveillance and doorbell cameras to see if they may have information about the signs.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective R. Tyndall at 910-677-5499 or Crimestoppers at 910-483-TIPS (8477).
