Eagle Police: Wolf campaign signs stolen
July 27, 2010
EAGLE, Colorado – Eagle Police say they have recovered four stolen campaign signs. They were signs for Charles Wolf’s campaign for sheriff. The candidate is challenging Republican incumbent Joe Hoy in the upcoming primary election.
Eagle Police received a call Monday morning from a woman who lives in the Bluffs neighborhood, police officer Brian Lippa said. The woman said thieves stole a campaign sign from her yard and one from her neighbor’s yard, he said. Police found the missing signs and two others later that day stuck in a sewer grate by the fire house on Third Street, Lippa said.
“We don’t have any leads,” he said. “If a lead comes up, that would be helpful.”
Potential charges for stealing the signs could include theft and second degree tampering, Police Chief Rodger McLaughlin said. Each misdemeanor charge could lead to a fine as high as $500 and up to 6 months in jail.
