Md. man charged with lawn sign theft

Anne Arundel County police say a Glen Burnie man has been charged with stealing lawn signs urging voters to approve a slots parlor.

Police say officers arrested David Corrigan about 4 a.m. Saturday after they saw him knocking down a sign.

Police say officers then found about 70 signs in Corrigan’s vehicle. Police say Corrigan, who faces theft charges, may be linked to other sign thefts throughout the county.

The proposal to build the state’s largest casino with 4,750 machines next to a shopping mall in Anne Arundel County is facing a November referendum.

Ok, so if the guy was removing signs from peoples front yards, maybe. If he was removing them from the sides of roads, thank him. At least someone is doing it because the dopes that place them can't seem to remove them.

This kind of stuff happens every election cycle. At least we know how he should spend his community service time.

if a lawn sign can get you to vote a certain way, we don't need you voting at all.

When outlaw lawn sign outlaws are outlawed, only outlaw sign outlaws will have signs.

Works for me.

gpl2411,

He was caught, on video, removing signs from the property in front of the "FOR Question A" headquarters office.

The best word that I can prescribe to this situation it pure stupidity! These signs seem to be on public property and therefore can be picked up by anyone with no legal implications. This is pure politics, not criminal science. The police want question A so that they can get their cut off the deal. They are are watching out for their own backs, not the publics'. Arrest people who are real criminals, don't arrest those who simply have a different political view than you do.
