On Friday, police in Perrysburg arrested Corey Beaubian, 37, Sean Bresler, 33; and John Russell, 39, all of Toledo; and Christopher Monaghan, 41, of Rossford, after they allegedly stole several Mitt Romney campaign signs throughout Northwest Ohio.

The stolen signs were discovered in a Ford F-150 pickup truck owned by the Sheet Metal Workers International, Union Local 33 in Parma, according to police.

The large signs were all located on private property and hung by members of the Northwest Ohio Conservative Coalition.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports:

“…the website for Union Local 33 lists Russell and Monaghan as business agents for the Toledo district, and Beaubian’s Facebook page lists himself as a sheet metal journeyman since 1999.”

All four suspects have been charged with receiving stolen property.
