In the midst of the political campaign season, some candidates have turned their focus to vandalism.
More specifically, catching vandals destroying or stealing their campaign signs.
Houston County Sheriff Candidate, Eddie Ingram, says more than 50 of his campaign signs have been stolen or destroyed in the last 3 weeks.
A $500 cash reward is offered for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person caught in the act.
Surveillance video captured 1 person vandalizing a sign.
"We were able to get a tag number to identify a potential suspect. As soon as Dothan PD confirms that, I will obtain a warrant on the suspect and have them arrested,” says Ingram.
Ingram has 2 dozen cameras around Dothan, he already has surveillance of 2 people.

    If Eddie Ingram gets elected, that would show just how stupid people really are. Then again, Obama made it.....keep plugging away, Ingram. I think you're two peas in a pod!

    Does vandalism apply when one candidate's sign is removed and replaces it with an "ingram" sign?

    This is a media stunt. It looks like the entire incident was staged. Eddie was talking tough all the way up until the "vandal" was identified and approached for an interview by another local news outlet. Now Eddie has accepted an apology and decided not to prosecute? Yeah, right. Way to get taken for a ride WTVY!
