Wilton Police received numerous reports of thefts or vandalism to political signs throughout town last week. The culprits appeared to either be nonpartisan or apolitical, as Republican and Democratic signs were victimized.
Incidents were reported on New Canaan Road, Ridgefield Road, Chestnut Hill Road, Hurlbutt Street and Cedar Lane, police said.
This isn’t the first time this election season where signs around Wilton have been vandalized or stolen. Police Captain John Lynch said those caught vandalizing or stealing signs could be charged with larceny in the sixth degree, criminal mischief and criminal trespass.
Police also responded to two reports of mailboxes being smashed or stolen in town last week.
An Old Boston Road resident reported their mailbox was smashed during the night on Oct. 19, while a Nod Hill Road resident reported the next day that one mailbox was smashed and the one next to it was stolen.
