Man charged with 57 counts for stealing political signs

MARTIN COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - The Martin County Sheriff's Office has arrested a man for stealing political campaign signs.

Deputies say 23-year-old Nicholas Joseph Caputo had 57 signs from 18 different candidates in his SUV.  

When asked about them, Caputo said, he was, "Cleaning up the neighborhood".

He told deputies he didn't think it was right for the signs to be out because he considered it littering.

Caputo has been charged with 57 counts of theft and is currently in the Martin County Jail.
