LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - A Lawrenceville man has installed a metal cage and barbed wire fencing around a Donald Trump campaign sign on his front yard, with an accompanying sign warning the public that trespassers “will be shot.”

Homeowner Jim Poe tells WXIA-TV (https://on.11alive.com/2f7JonB ) that he installed the cage and anchored it after two Trump signs of his were stolen from in front of his home on two separate occasions. The second time, he says the thief went through barbed wire to steal the sign supporting the Republican presidential nominee.

When the television station asked Poe what actions he would take if he caught someone stealing his sign again, Poe’s response was short: “Probably be better not to be public record.”

Police say anyone caught stealing campaign signs could face a misdemeanor theft charge.
