A resident of Somers, NY, located in northern Westchester County, has been wondering who’s been stealing his “Repeal NY SAFE Act” signs, so he sets up a hidden camera.
Lo and behold, look who’s taking them:
A man in Somers, N.Y., hatched a plan to catch the individual responsible for allegedly stealing his pro-gun signs repeatedly from his front yard. He bought a trail cam, set it up near the sign — and then waited.
When he learned that his sign had been taken yet again, he was elated because he knew he had finally caught the person responsible on camera.
He just didn’t expect that person to be a uniformed police officer.
Assuming the photos are entirely authentic, a police officer with the Somers Police Department appears to have been caught on camera ripping the sign, which reads: “Protect the Second Amendment,” from the man’s front yard. It wasn’t immediately clear if the police officer had removed the sign previously too or if the action was ordered by Somers PD.
TheBlaze has left messages with the Somers Police Department as well as the man who claims his signs were removed from his property on multiple occasions.
Here’s some of his account:
One can understand why he first thought one of his neighbors, who was clearly against his Second Amendment sign and underlying message supporting the repeal New York’s so-called SAFE Act, was responsible.
But after setting up his camera, which he reportedly bought with the help of donations from fellow members on NYFirearms.com, the man learned that a police officer had taken his sign — at least on this occasion.
“Very strange turn of events…and im not quite sure where to go with this now,” he wrote. “[It’s] the freaking SOMERS PD.”
Go see a lawyer. Here’s another shot:
