A police officer applied for an arrest warrant after noticing a street sign at a residence during a domestic dispute call.
Camden Lyon, 28, of Locust Avenue, turned himself in to police on Nov. 20 and was charged with one count of sixth-degree larceny.
The officer was in Lyon's house regarding a domestic dispute call from Lyon's housemates. The dispute did not lead to an arrest, but while the officer was in the house, he noticed a Grove Street sign in Lyon's room. Lyon told police he didn't take the sign, and gave it to the officer, police said.
The officer checked with the highway department that the sign was missing, and upon learning that it was, filed for a warrant.
