Road sign thefts have recently increased in LaRue County.
According to LaRue County Assistant Road Supervisor David Wood, his department has replaced 31 road signs across LaRue County since October. He said the road signs are being taken from Airline Road, Hawkins Road, U.S. 31E, Hwy 470 and Cissal Hill Road.
“It’s like they are making a big circle. Some of them have been yanked completely out of the ground, post and all,” Wood said. “In some cases we have replaced the road signs and they are gone again the next day.”
