Twenty-eight street signs worth an estimated $5,000 were stolen from a rural area between Woodstock and Tillsonburg in the past few days.

Oxford County OPP say all 28 signs were taken from intersections along Middletown Line in Norwich Township.

The signs were removed at some point between Oct. 7 and Tuesday.

OPP say stealing road signs is both a criminal act and a dangerous one. They want to hear from anyone who has information about the thefts.
