The Morton County Sheriff’s Department is asking for your help to stop a crime that’s becoming too common. 

Numerous Morton County road signs have been shot with shotguns and handguns in recent days. 

The Sheriff’s Department is asking the public to be vigilant when traveling along county roads and report any suspicious activity immediately. 

The damage to the signs has occurred primarily in the Glen Ullin and Almont areas. 

According to Morton County, replacing the signs costs taxpayers between $200-$250 per sign. 

Vandalizing a road sign is a Class B misdemeanor with a fine of $500 and up to 30 days in jail.
