Earley nabs sign vandals.
Joe Earley and Marina Littleton were tired of losing political signs they put on a Fowler Street lot. So, last Friday night they went on a stakeout which paid off after about 20 minutes.
Just after 11pm, two male youths began vandalizing the signs, Earley said. After they finished, Earley and Ms. Littleton confronted them.
She went off to call police while Earley stayed with them. One of the youths even asked "why he was harassing them," Earley said.
Police came and took the two Raymond 16 year old boys into custody. They were issued citations for minors being in possession of alcohol, according to Raymond Police Chief Tom Wilson.
