4 in union truck charged with receiving stolen property

Early this morning, officers from the Perrysburg Police Department charged four men with receiving stolen property following several reports of missing political yard signs.

Perrysburg is a small town in Wood County just outside of Toledo, Ohio.

The stolen property was a truck bed full of Romney/Ryan yard signs, some measuring as large as 4 ft x 8 ft.

Also in the truck were tools such as drills, which might have been used to take down the large mini-billboard signs. The signs were allegedly removed from several private property and business locations across Lucas and Wood County.

Charged and summoned to appear in court were:

* John Russell, 39, of Eleanor Street, Toledo, Ohio
* Sean A. Bresler, 33, of Capistrano Drive, Toledo, Ohio
* Corey J. Beaubien, 37, of Kelsey, Toledo, Ohio
* Christopher Monaghan, 41, of Oak Street, Rossford, Ohio

The 2010 Ford pickup they were in was registered to the Sheet Metal Workers Local #33 on Corporate Drive in Parma, Ohio.

Interestingly, four individuals in the Toledo area with the exact same names are listed as officers of the Sheet Metal Workers Union, or sheet metal workers.

The website for Local #33 lists a John Russell and Christopher Monaghan as business agents for the Toledo District.

A John Russell is also listed as the Vice President of the Northwest Ohio Building and Construction Trades Council, representing Local #33.

A Facebook page for a Corey Beaubien who lives in Toledo identifies himself as a Sheet Metal journeyman since 1999.

A Toledo Blade Log page from 2005 lists a Sean Bresler as a marriage license applicant. That Sean Bresler was listed as being 26 years old at the time - the same age as the one charged - and having an occupation of sheet metal worker.

Now, it is possible that the four men charged are not the same ones identified as union members and officers, but that would have to be a very large coincidence and would not explain how they got access to a truck registered to the Sheet Metal Union Local #33.

Below are screen shots of the references and the police reports.

Maggie, Maggie, Maggie,

Those gentlemen were simply "moving" those signs to a different location. They were not actually stealing anything.

They can explain to the judge who is going to do nothing about it, that they are actually Republicans that support Romney/Ryan and they needed those signs to place them in more strategic locations.

Simple misunderstanding. All charges will be dropped.

Barely a mention of it in the daily paper today in Toledo that's been in Obama's hip pocket for the past four years. I guess it's one of those "Nothing here to see, move on" stories for them -- the same kind of story the murders of our Americans in the embassy in Benghazi is. The Cleveland Plain Dealer web site had a longer story.

I read it on national blogs & websites before I saw the Blade article. Despicable. The Coalition looked great out there today though! I didn't realize what was going on until I read my email!

THAT is how dumb these lefitst clowns are...because everyone knows that if we don't see a Romney sign...we'll just vote for Obama!
Receiving stolen property...jailtime and a criminal record...well worth getting in order to support Obama!

"What did YOU do to support Obama?...
I stole yard signs, vandalized property, got caught, went to jail, paid a fine, and have a record that tells everyone I'm a thief! "

The mentality of the obama supporter on display!
