Stolen vehicle was used to vandalize signs in Dickinson
DICKINSON - The Dickinson Police Department reported on Wednesday that a vehicle was apparently stolen from a Dickinson man and used to vandalize several street signs around the city.
Lt. Dave Wallace said reports of streets signs being knocked over began coming in this past Monday.
"We suspect it happened Sunday night," Wallace said.
He added that four signs were pushed over on Fifth Avenue West, and several more were found at different location throughout Dickinson.
Wallace said nine signs have been confirmed as being part of the incident, but he expects to find several more.
He added that Guy Harper's vehicle, which had apparently been stolen, is suspected to have been used to push the signs over.
According to the police report, Harper's vehicle was found on Sims Street at about 11:36 p.m. this past Tuesday.
Harper, a Dickinson resident, allegedly told authorities his vehicle was taken from his residence on 10th Avenue West sometime between July 20-21. Wallace said Harper didn't report the vehicle missing until it was recovered.
Wallace said damage on the front of the vehicle suggests it may have been used to knock down the street signs.
The damage to the vehicle is estimated at under $100, and Wallace said a set of golf clubs is also missing from Harper's vehicle.
There are currently no suspects connected to the incident.
