This must have been a multiple person crime as I remember loading this when he bought it years ago and it was two men and a tracto to load it. Darn it Don. I feel for you!!!!

Seems strange someone wouldn't have seen them? That's a pretty big heavy piece to lift off the top of a pole, and they should have had some equipment to do it? Stuff like a boom truck, usually draws a little attention when its parked somewhere with men working on something as large as a big Conoco sign?
Its tough to hide something that big in todays world of rapid communication! Hopefully these jerks will get caught.

Kevin the sign was not attached to the pole both were laying on the ground. My parents live two doors away and my sister lives next door and the neighbors all know my hours but no one seen a thing. I do have a possible lead from another old gas member that I will check out later today. Will report back either way. Thanks again guys for keeping a eye out for the sign

Well, I hope the lead pans out, Don. Nothing worse than getting something stolen. Ten years ago, you could kiss it goodby, but with todays communication, you have a good chance of finding it!
