Two weeks before Election Day, a woman was spotted taking a Mitt Romney campaign sign from a yard in Richland Township.
A resident called police Oct. 23 after seeing her take the sign from his yard on Ridge Road; he provided them with the license plate number on the woman's vehicle, according to Northern Regional Police Chief T. Robert Amann.
Police stopped the woman's vehicle near the intersection of Bakerstown Road and Babcock Boulevard in Pine Township, he said on Friday.
The woman had no signs in her vehicle, but led police to her home on Linwood Drive, off Glasgow Road in the Valencia area of Richland Township, the chief said.
There she produced nine Romney campaign signs, including the one from Ridge Road, he said.
"She advised my officer that some were taken from Adams Township (along) Route 228," Amann said.
All were returned, the chief said.
The woman, whom Amann did not identify, was not charged.
Police have not received any other reports of signs being taken, he said.
Asked if the woman explained why she took the signs, Amann said no.
"One can only guess," he said.
