News in brief for Oct. 28

Candidates signs being vandalized, stolen

City Council candidate signs are being vandalized and stolen, the Steamboat Springs Police Department reported.

Assistant Police Chief Art Fiebing said more than 20 signs have been damaged. One candidate in particular has been targeted, but more than one candidates’ signs have been harmed.

Fiebing urged anyone who has information or sees anyone vandalizing the signs to contact the police department. The crime could come with charges of criminal mischief, theft and trespassing.

“For one, the signs are not cheap. None of these people are independently wealthy. Also it is disruptive to the political process,” Fiebing said.
