The Owen Sound Police Service has been receiving reports of election signs being damaged, tampered with or stolen.

Police want to remind residents that it is a criminal offence to tamper with election signage.

People could face charges of theft, mischief to property and trespass by night.

“A criminal record will negatively affect a person’s ability to obtain employment and may also prohibit that person from travelling internationally,” said a news release

Officers say the actions are in no way worth the consequences.
