Brown County Sheriff's investigate damaged, stolen highway signs

BELLEVUE, WI (WTAQ) - Brown County Sheriff's need your help finding the suspects behind a rash of damaged and stolen highway signs.

Authorities say 18 signs have been pushed over and two signs have been stolen since Sunday, March 24. 

Sheriff’s officials believe a person driving either a pickup truck or SUV is responsible for the damages. Investigators say at two sites dark blue metallic paint markings and chips were found. That evidence will be reviewed at the State of Wisconsin Crime Lab. 

Officials are not only concerned about the damage, but say a missing sign could cause a serious crash. 

"You're talking about missing stop signs," says Lt. Scott Semb. "If any of these missing signs, and we can prove that it led to a traffic crash before the sign can be replaced and injuries result, serious additional charges will be referred to the District Attorney's office."

Anyone with information is asked to call the Brown County Sheriff’s Office at (920) 448-4230. Callers can also remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at (920) 432-7867.
