Port Carbon Police are looking for the person who brazenly stole a Back the Blue yard sign outside Borough Hall recently.

You can see in a surveillance video shared to the PD’s Facebook page, someone from a distance wearing a yellow hoodie jogs up to the sign and pilfers it.

In addition to the yellow hoodie, you can see the perpetrator also wore a pair of red Puma sneakers.

After picking up the sign, the person looks around for a second and then jogs back down the hill and goes on in an opposite direction from which they came.

    I’m curious as to our state local situation with all of this ‘defund police’ stuff. I’m not in support of it because I’m not an idiot and know that if police bugets are cut that means less police, more crime. I have noticed recently that my local city hall almost always has a lot full of patrol cars. Is that because their buget has been cut? If that’s the case people who realize and care about what that’s going to bring need to step up and donate to local police so they can continue to serve.
