Truth Reports Signs Opposing Concord Schools' Referendum Stolen

From the Elkhart Truth:

Just days after signs opposing Concord schools' referendum went up, somebody started taking them down. 

About 100 "vote no" yard signs distributed by the Vote No in Concordgroup have disappeared from various locations in Elkhart County since Sunday, April 6, according to the group's leader, K.C. Clements. 

The green and white signs encourage residents to vote against areferendum that would give Concord schools more funding through a property tax hike.

Clements filed a report about the missing signs with the Elkhart County Sheriff's Department on Monday, though at that time he reported between 20 and 30 signs missing, according to Undersheriff Sean Holmes. 

Holmes said that whoever took the signs could be charged with theft, which is a felony. 

"At this point we don’t have any suspects or leads," he said, adding, "It’s one of those things that, unless we have someone that does know something about this, it’s hard to follow up on."
