South Orange Signs Stolen, One is Damaged
The "Woodside" sign is the latest threatened sign
South Orange has seen three signs taken and one damaged in recent weeks.
The bronze "Woodside" sign from Forest Road is the latest missing sign. Police report the Woodside sign, a bronze plaque attached to a large stone at the intersection of Forest Road and Wyoming Avenue, was stolen sometime before Sept. 21, when a resident noticed it missing. The origin of the plaque is unknown.
Earlier in September, two men were seen removing the street sign that marked Centre Street and South Orange Avenue. On Sept. 7, at 1:30 a.m., a resident called police to report the men left the area in a Nissan Altima.
Likewise, the stop sign at the intersection of Academy Street and Milligan Place was removed sometime before Aug. 26.
A sign was damaged in recent weeks, as well. Michael Terranova, 20, of Freehold, was arrested for disorderly conduct on Aug. 31 when he threw a glass bottle and damaged a sign on First Street.
