Marathon Co. Crimestoppers: Sign Theft

by Natalie Sparacio

MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW)-- There were road signs damaged and stolen in the Township of Brighton and Crimestoppers is asking for your help to catch the thieves responsible.

Between Tuesday August 4 and Friday August 7, a Yield ahead sign from Mystic Rd near Town hall Rd was stolen as well as two bridge marker signs from River Rd just north of STH 153.

A T-intersection sign located at Century Rd and River Rd was pulled down and damaged.

Not only is the theft of traffic signs a crime, but stealing them could jeopardize public safety and cause a crash where someone could be seriously injured or killed as a result.

If you have any information about the theft of these road signs or any other crimes, please give Marathon County Crimestoppers a call.

Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
