Stealing Open House Signs

Had my open house signs stolen by the Pacific Shores development in Huntington Beach. I know things are getting tough in our industry, but we still should treat one another in a professional and ethical manner. Have you ever had signs stolen by a competitor that were on public property?

Are you sure they were stolen by a competitor?  In our area, many jurisdictions have ordinances restricting and/or banning signs.  They enlist the help of neighborhood vigilantes to pick up the signs and discard them.  In some cases, the signs are picked up by the public works department or by community associations (and if you ask nicely, sometimes you can get them back).

Yep. Check out the link to the post I wrote.  I found them in their trash can.

Since you were sure they were stolen and had the proof why not call the police? They should go after events like theft and vandalism. They could check for fingerprints and likely even find the guilty party.
