If I have a stolen street sign, how can I return it?

A reader writes that his former roommate moved out, leaving behind a large, stolen “slippery when wet” street sign.

The stolen street sign can be returned to the New Hanover County Property Management office at 200 Division Drive, Wilmington [Map this].

The office is next to New Hanover County Animal Control and not far from the Wilmington International Airport.

Office hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The phone number is (910) 798-4330.

    \i remember a Florida case, where one or more teenagers stole a “stop” sign, soon after resulting in a fatal accident at the intersection. Don’t recall their sentence.

    in our area, most “slippery” signs are found on metal grate bridges. perhaps the DOT is a possible owner?
