With elections around the corner, residents around McPherson have seen their political signs being tampered with recently. Some signs have been pulled from the ground and laid down so they can’t be seen, while others have been outright taken. No police reports have been filed, but specific candidates for the school board elections seem to be targeted.
According to the McPherson Police Department, a Kansas Criminal Statute could not be found in regards to tampering with the signs, however it is considered theft is the signs are taken and damage to property if the signs are intentionally damaged. Either is considered a misdemeanor.
