SUGAR LAND, Texas — Someone was caught on camera stealing yard signs in Sugar Land. They're not just any signs, they belong to a candidate running for city council.
Naushad Kermally wasn't planning to make a big deal about his stolen signs, but when he woke up every morning this week to more of them gone, he said enough is enough.
"This should not happen in Sugar Land, this sweet city we live in of Sugar Land," said Kermally.
Starting Sunday, in the middle of the night, home security cameras show a white car pulling up, someone getting out of the passenger side and stealing the sign right out of the front yard.
"It's my volunteers I think about that have put so much time and effort into it," he said.
Kermally is a candidate on the May ballot for Sugar Land City Council District 2.
"To wake up every morning this week and to have signs just gone and then some that are just taken off and vandalized, ripped, it's just not right," he said.
Sugar Land Police are now canvassing neighborhoods in Telfair and New Territory, where the thefts occurred. It's not the way this first-time candidate expected to start off his race.
"This is disheartening but it's not going to stop me, it's not going to derail me, all I'm asking is stop," said Kermally.
A spokesman for Sugar Land Police told KHOU you can be charged with theft for stealing signs. They're asking anyone with information to call police.
