On Oct. 17, a complaintant on Skyland Drive told Snellville police officers that he had a Romney/Ryan campaign sign on the northeast corner of his front yard. While he was in his back yard, he heard a "popping" sound.
When he came back to the front yard, he saw his campaign sign lying flat on the ground, broken. It appeared to have been kicked over. He stated that he saw a male getting into what he believed to be a black Toyota Prius with two females in the front seat. The vehicle then headed south on Skyland Drive.
He stated that the sign had been "stomped on" two previous times, but that he did not report them.
As officers were speaking with the victim, his next door neighbor walked up to report his own Romney/Ryan sign missing.
The incident was reported on Oct. 19 as theft by taking.
