‘East Bridgewater For Trump’ Signs Keep Getting Stolen

August 26, 2020

Signs have been going missing in East Bridgewater, but the police finally caught one of the perpetrators on Monday.

The East Bridgewater Republican Town Committee has produced signs that say “East Bridgewater for Trump.” But according committee chairman Myles Heger, about 15 to 20 of them have been stolen — mostly near Central Street and Bridge Street.

On Monday, August 24, two girls in a white Toyota Prius stole a sign, but when they were caught by the East Bridgewater police, they “returned” the sign to a house, according to a Facebook post from the East Bridgewater Republican town committee.

“The two young girls should have a nice discussion at their dinner table,” the post reads, in part. “Thanks again EBPD, great work!”

A spokesman for the East Bridgewater Police Department could not immediately be reached for comment.
