Augusta man indicted on charge he stole Richmond County signs

 

A grand jury indicted an Augusta man this week on a theft by receiving stolen property charge after investigators said he collected several signs belonging to Richmond County.

The indictment against Alan Haskins, of the 3400 block of Jonathan Circle, lists the stolen property as: 12 stop signs; five street signs; two dual-arrow signs; two yield signs; one weight-limit sign; one “Do Not Enter” sign; and one “Pullman Hall” sign.

Investigators said they were alerted to Campbell’s Recycling Center, 250 Dan Bowles Road, by employees after Haskins sold them the signs. The signs were reported stolen from the Traffic Engineering Sign Shop, 1815 Marvin Griffin Road.

The indictment lists the collective value of the signs at greater than $500. Arresting officers placed the total value at $1,100.
