WATCH: Robeson County sheriff searching for campaign sign stealer

VIDEO: Person steals political sign from Robeson County yard

ROBESON COUNTY, N.C. (WMBF) – The Robeson County sheriff wants to know who is responsible for stealing a sign right for a person’s yard.

Sheriff Burnis Wilkins posted a video on his Facebook page showing a car pull up to a person’s yard on Wire Grass Road, and a backseat passenger hops out and steals and destroys an election sign.

“If I were the driver of this vehicle and the passenger seen here, I would probably come on in and let’s talk,” Wilkins said. “I don’t want to utilize time and resources to track you down but will if necessary.”

Wilkins said stealing a political sign is a Class III criminal misdemeanor offense.

He is asking who may know the person to send him a message on his Facebook page.

Anyone knowing who this is, please inbox me the information. You will be kept confidential. As you will see, a car decides to stop and let a rear seat passenger out only to run up on private property on Wire Grass Road to steal and destroy an election sign. This happens to be a Class III criminal misdemeanor offense. There are many more camera angles related to this theft but I will use this one and one more in the comments. If I were the driver of this vehicle and the passenger seen here, I would probably come on in and let’s talk. I don’t want to utilize time and resources to track you down but will if necessary. #dotherightthingplease #voteforwhoyouwantinoffice
