A Spruce Street resident told police that four of the eight lawn signs she placed around the Southport section of town advocating a "No" vote in the June 14 education budget referendum were taken over the weekend.

She did not indicate where the lawn signs had been placed. Lawn signs are not allowed in the public right-of-way. Deputy Chief Chris Lyddy said any items in the right-of-way can be considered abandoned property and can be removed by town crews or other officials.

Earlier in the week, another opponent of the referendum reported to police that roughly 100 of 200 vote "no" lawn signs her group had posted were stolen over the weekend.
