A $500 reward has been offered by private individuals for information leading to the identification and prosecution of those responsible for stealing almost 70 ‘John Hall for Congress’ yard signs since Oct. 12. Anyone with information on these thefts is asked to call the Croton Police at 914-271-5177.
According to Lindsay Audin, coordinator of Hall sign distribution in Croton, 68 signs have been stolen from 51 homes in the last two weeks. He stated that “this is far beyond some prank or political dirty trick. Instead, there has been a concerted effort to interfere with free speech and this election through dozens of cases of criminal trespass and petty larceny.”
According to Lt. Det. Anthony Tramiglini of the Croton Police, 25 of the signs were found discarded at Spencer Fields, the Croton High School playing field off Gerstein Road, on Saturday (10/29). Efforts are underway to find and prosecute the thieves. Information providers’ names will be kept confidential.
