Mayes County authorities are crediting Facebook this week for helping them located a suspect who reportedly stole street signs.
District Attorney Janice Steidley stated Monday that two dozen street signs have been stolen in the north part of Mayes County. Among them are stop signs, yield signs and other street signs.
"This is a senseless prank which could cost someone their life and we want to make the public aware," Steidley stated in the news release.
Deputies with the Mayes County Sheriff's Office added that a "person of interest" has been located in relation to the stolen signs. This was after investigators made the lead on Facebook.
Steidley says anyone convicted of taking a traffic sign could face charges, including manslaughter or second-degree murder, if a traffic fatality occurs because the signs were removed. She says taking a sign can lead to a charge of malicious injury to property.
Anyone with information about this crime should contact the Mayes County Sheriff's Office at (918) 825-3844
