LINCOLN COUNTY - A town near Merrill, Harding, hopes the public can help solve a series of crimes.
The Lincoln County Sheriff's department is looking for the person taking signs in the town of Harding.
"A suspect has been traveling through the town of Harding and has been stealing road signs,"Lincoln County Sheriff's Department Lt. Jim Fischer said. "Whether it was road indication signs or stop signs."
The town of Harding has had signs vandalized or stolen before. But the town's supervisor Donald Graap says not this many in such a short period of time.
"Usually it's just one or two signs they take," Graap said. "This time it was 13 to 14 and some from the county."
If a crash happens because of a missing sign, the person who took the sign will be held responsible.
"If there was property crash or injury crash and that person could be tied to the theft of that crime they could be found civilly liable for any damages be it injury or property," said Fischer.
