Carteret Co. deputies: Political sign theft a misunderstanding


NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) –  The Carteret County Sheriff’s Office said what was believed to be the theft of a political sign was instead a misunderstanding.

Deputies said the woman who took the sign thought it was just simply on the side of the road since it was not in front of a home.

She put the sign in her yard and notified law enforcement immediately after being told she was on the news.

She is fully cooperating with law enforcement, and she will not be facing any criminal charges.

The sign was brought back to the Sheriff’s Office.
