$5k bounty on sign thief
Agent sees red over vandalism and pilfering
Mr Sintes said he would personally pay $5000 to anyone who provided information about the disappearing signs which led to a conviction of the perpetrator.
He believed there would be people in the community who knew who was stealing and tampering with them.
Mr Sintes said he was unsure of the motive behind the behaviour as the signs would not be much use to anyone else.
They cost about $75 to make and he expected they were either ‘‘dumped or destroyed’’.
‘‘I just think putting a $5000 bounty out there will curb their behaviour. Or if the perpetrator wants to come forward I’ll accept an apology and a coffee and move on,’’ he said.
At least half a dozen signs had been tampered with.
Mr Sintes encouraged those who may have seen red Locations signs in places they should not be or suspicious behaviour near the signs to report it.
He had not made an official complaint to police as they had better things to do than deal with ‘‘petty’’ things, he said.
Stolen signs: Locations sales consultant Hugh Sintes is offering a $5000 bounty for information which leads to a conviction of the person who has been stealing and tampering with his red work signs.
