Facebook photo helps police find missing signs

MAYSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A northeastern Kentucky sheriff says a Facebook photo has led to the recovery of several stolen signs and to a citation against a teen.

Mason County Sheriff Patrick Boggs told The Ledger-Independent (bit.ly/XBcYWI) that his office found 16 signs on Sunday, and cited 19-year-old Zakery Mitchell of Lewisburg on a charge of receiving stolen property.

Boggs said the teen posted a photo of himself with other people, but the signs were in the background.

He said recovering the signs will save a lot of taxpayer money. The signs recovered included nine county road signs, two city signs and five advisory signs. Boggs said two of the signs read "Mitchell Alley."
