POQUOSON, Va. (WAVY) — Hundreds of lawn signs protesting against a Walmart store were reported stolen Tuesday, but the majority of them were recovered hours later.
Police say a member of “Concerned Citizens for Poquoson” reported Tuesday up to 400 signs were stolen across town.
Police say a majority of the signs were found in at least three large piles around town, including The Poquoson Community Center on Odd Road.
Many residents say they are against the proposed plan to build a Walmart Neighborhood Market on Victory Boulevard across from City Hall Avenue.
City Council still needs to review the decision.
Police say they have not made any arrests in connection with the stolen signs.
