3rd billboard taken down along Hwy 101
ARCATA- Another billboard has been taken down along the hwy 101 safety corridor by an unknown vandal. The third billboard was reported to the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office Monday morning and is believed to be removed sometime over the weekend.
Last week two other billboards were removed by the vandal who, authorities believe, was using an electric saw. The owner of the most recently removed sign installed a security camera that captured the suspect. In the footage the alleged vandal is wearing a hoodie and using, what appears to be, a Sawzall. The damages to the sign amount to $20,000.
The Humboldt County Sheriff's Office has made no arrests and say they have no suspects at this time.
