FORBES, N.D. (AP) - The mayor of the small southeastern North Dakota town of Forbes is accused of removing a campaign sign from private property.

Dennis Schrum is charged with criminal trespass, criminal mischief, theft and disorderly conduct. All of the charges are misdemeanors that carry a maximum punishment of about a month in jail.

Dickey County Sheriff Jim Bohannon tells the American News of Aberdeen (https://bit.ly/1wJeIMs ) that Schrum allegedly removed a campaign sign for one of two deputies seeking to succeed Bohannon, who isn’t running for re-election.

Schrum is scheduled to make his initial court appearance on Nov. 18. Court documents don’t list an attorney for him. He did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.
