Authorities are looking for the thieves who have stolen dozens of road signs in Vernon County. Sheriff John Spears says more than 25 signs have been taken – some removed from the posts and, in some cases, the posts were cut and taken, too. W-E-A-U / T-V reports stealing a road or traffic sign can result in a fine of up to 100-dollars and a 30-day jail sentence for first offense. The Department of Transportation says the second offense doubles the maximum time in jail. Sheriff Spears says missing signs can cause crashes and put people at risk while they are driving. No arrests have been reported.
