BROWN COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - Three cases of apparent vandalism to stop signs are being investigated by the Brown County Sheriff's Department.
Deputies were called to the intersection of Morrison Road and Highway X in the Town of Morrison just before 7 a.m. Saturday. Officials then get another call about 10 minutes later to the intersection of Ryan Road and Old Martin Road in the Town of Rockland. Then, just after 9 a.m. they were called to the intersection of Langes Corners Road and Town Hall Road in the Town of New Denmark.
Each time, the stop sign's post was broken at the base. Investigators believe a vehicle drove very slowly into the sign post. It's unclear when the signs were damaged.
The sheriff's department say that the person or people behind the damage will be held responsible for any crashes that happen because the signs were knocked over. If a crash involves injuries, the parties who knocked over the signs could face felony criminal charges.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Brown Co. Sheriff’s Office at (920) 448-4230. Anonymous tips may be left with Crime Stoppers by calling (920) 432-7867 or sending a text message with the keyword GBTIP and the information to 274637.
