Lubbock City Council Candidate Offers Reward to Catch a Thief

With only weeks until Lubbock's city election, one District Four candidate is offering a reward to catch a thief.  

Paul Beane says more than twenty of his campaign signs were stolen in the last week. Candidate Tom Keisling says someone has also been stealing his signs. Jerry Bell says at least two of his larger signs were cut down and stolen, as well.

"There's one thing about soaping somebody's window or throwing toilet paper in somebody's tree," said Beane. "But when you start fooling with the election process you start fooling with something that's pretty sacred in this country and I'd ask them to stop and not do it."

Beane is offering a $500 reward for information that will lead to the arrest and conviction of anyone stealing campaign signs.
