Several kids and young adults are facing theft and criminal damage to property charges in connection to dozens of street signs that were stolen over a number of weeks in west-central Minnesota.
The Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office announced Friday that investigators were provided tips that led to the search of several residences on Wednesday, resulting in the recovery of "over 35 public works street signs and a construction barrel."
"These signs are believed to have been taken over a several week period in northeastern Kandiyohi County," the sheriff's office said.
"The investigation is ongoing but several juveniles and young adults will face theft and criminal damage to property charges."
Earlier this week the sheriff's office reported the stolen signs to the public, saying the absence of stop signs, yield signs and bridge ahead signs were causing dangers at intersections and curves on county roadways.
More public works signs are still missing, so anyone with information that could help investigators recover them is asked to call the sheriff's office at 320-214-6700, and use extension 6718.
