Perrysburg, Ohio - As reported on FoxToledo, The Blaze and Drudge, yesterday morning 4 men driving a pickup truck registered to the Sheet Metal Union, Local 33 were arrested and charged with receiving stolen property – in the form of a bed full of Romney/Ryan yard signs, some measuring as large as 4′x8′. Also in the truck were tools such as drills, which were possibly used to take the large signs down. The signs were allegedly removed from several private property and business locations across Lucas and Wood County.
There is no official word yet if this was a coordinated effort statewide, however calls to union President, Michael Coleman have not been returned.
