An opponent of U.S. President Barack Obama chose more than the ballot box to express displeasure — someone apparently twice took signs in favor of the incumbent presidential candidate from the lawn of a South Maple Avenue home, according to Bernards Township police.
Police said they initially received a report that the signs had been stolen some time between 7 p.m. Oct. 9 and 8 a.m. Oct. 10.
According to the police report, the signs were replaced — but the homeowner notified police at about 3:30 p.m. on Sunday afternoon that they had been removed from the lawn some time between last Friday and on Sunday.
Police said that this time, the signs reportedly had been ripped up and placed in the resident's mailbox.
Police said that whoever stole or destroyed the signs is subject to a charge of criminal mischief.
