‘Vote no’ on pot stores signs stolen; Group says thieves to blamePosted by On

Signs like this one found on W. Main Street in Brighton, shown Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2022, have reportedly been stolen from residents' front lawns.

BRIGHTON — Residents opposed to allowing marijuana stores in the city say people have been stealing their yard signs that urge people to vote “no” on a city ballot proposal up for consideration in November.

“They are stealing the signs as fast as we are putting them up,” Dr. Thomas Litzinger said.

While members of the committee say they are being targeted, area police have been unable to confirm that, and noted political yard sign damage and theft appears to be happening at a similar rate to other elections.

“Every time there’s political signs that are out there, there’s always some that are stolen, some that are damaged, some that are defaced,” Livingston County Sheriff Mike Murphy said. “I don’t know that we’re seeing any more or any less destruction or defacing or theft than we do in any other typical election cycle.”
