Man Not Charged Yet After Stealing Three Road Signs

Martin Schmidt, Archbold Police chief, said, the theft of a high water sign, stop sign, and Fulton County Soil & Water Conservation windbreak sign remains under investigation.

A 19-year-old Archbold man admitted to stealing the signs. He has not been charged as of Tuesday.

The Archbold Police report states another man, who lives in the 400 block of Park Street, contacted police after finding the signs in his home. The man told officers his son resides in the home, but the son had nothing to do with the theft. The signs were simply in the house, the man said.

Police contacted the 19-yearold, who lives in the home; he admitted to officers that the stop sign was taken from Co. Rd. H-J in February. The high water sign was taken about midnight, March 20, from Co. Rd. 24-3 south of US20A, he told officers.

The soil and water conservation district sign was taken a year or two ago. The subject said he did not remember who was with him when the sign was stolen.
