SALEM, N.H. (AP) -- For the last two weeks, street signs, barricades and traffic cones have been disappearing from the town. Now, police have found a stash of them.

They found 27 street signs, and an assortment of traffic control, dead-end, "no outlet," and "not a thru street" signs. They also found barricades, cones, a bag full of nuts and bolts and sign holders.

Police issued arrest warrants for 21-year-old Christopher Mejia of Methuen, Massachusetts, and for 19-year-old Charles Foster of Salem, on charges of receiving stolen property and conspiracy to commit theft.

The Eagle Tribune reports Mejia turned himself in Monday. Foster is expected to turn himself in later this week. It wasn't immediately known if they had lawyers.
