OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - A Lafayette County man says a high-tech glitch is causing problems involving a private road on his property.

The Oxford Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1r1RO2x ) that John Brasher lives near County Road 154. The problem is that several GPS systems identify Brasher’s private road as a public street. Brasher told county officials this past week that, as a result, he gets several uninvited guests traveling across his property at all hours of the day and night.

Brasher said he is filing an application with Google that should help fix the problem on Google maps, but he doesn’t know how long it might take to resolve the issue.

On Monday, he asked the Lafayette County Board of Supervisors for any assistance they may be able to provide in the meantime.

County officials say they have been looking into the situation and plan to continue to help Brasher.

“I’ve worked with John many times on this, and we have three ‘Dead End’ signs on his road,” Supervisor Robert Blackmon said.

Blackmon said the county has also placed signs along the roads that say no ATVs or four-wheelers are allowed on the road, and Brasher has posted signs indicating that the road is on private property. However, the signs keep disappearing.

“Every time we put signs up on your road, they take them down,” Blackmon said. “We even put up cameras to see who was stealing these signs because the signs aren’t cheap and they stole the cameras. We don’t know what to do.”
