Sheriff DuMond Warns of Political Sign Thefts

Written By Editor on 9/23/20 | 9/23/20

Delhi – With the political season underway, Sheriff Craig DuMond would like to remind the public that removing, altering or defacing political signage is a crime punishable under the New
York State Penal Law. “I have been getting an increased amount of complaints regarding political signs being stolen from lawns and private property…people who engage in this behavior are subject to criminal prosecution”, Sheriff DuMond remarked.
“Nowadays, many property owners have installed video surveillance systems, trail cameras and the like to digitally record trespassers and criminal actions as they take place. These systems are an eye witness and critical in assisting law enforcement…I strongly  encourage people not to engage in trespassing or stealing political signs. It simply isn’t worth it”, the Sheriff concluded.
