Did you know that the Orange Live Lawn Signs, once placed on a resident’s lawn, become the property of the homeowner?
So, when you STEAL it, you are not hurting Orange Live (We’re doing FINE) You are committing a criminal act against the homeowner. You could be charged with sixth-degree larceny and trespassing. If you damage or deface them another charge will be added.
The same goes for political signs, and with the election season really heating up, you should keep this in mind and go through the proper channels if you desire a particular sign of your own.
The people who display these signs request them and display them proudly and they are quite upset if anything happens to them.
Political signs are easily attainable, just go to any election headquarters (once they open) and grab what you need, or request them and they will magically appear on your lawn.
The Orange Live signs are a little different, higher quality and few and far between, we have a waiting list of residents who want one for their lawn.
So now through election season, everyone please keep an eye out for your neighbors’ property. Report suspicious activity in your neighborhood to the police at 203-891-2130. Get the license plate number and description of a vehicle or perpetrators just as you would for any other theft.
Homeowners are upset and police and are aware of the thefts, any stolen signs should be returned to the rightful owners now. If you fear getting caught, you may leave any signs that you’ve taken next to the back door at Fire Station 2, (Post Road) and they will be returned to the homeowners.
