Forsyth sheriff's campaign worker accused of stealing signs

CUMMING - There's been another report of campaign sign tampering in North Georgia as the July 31st elections draw closer.

Channel 2 News reports that one of Forsyth County Sheriff Ted Paxton's campaign workers is being investigated for stealing more than 30 campaign signs belonging to Paxton's opponents.

Authorities said they responded to a domestic dispute at Joni Owens' home and saw a stack of signs outside her garage. Paxton's campaign manager said Owens has since been fired from the campaign.

Earlier this year, fire was set to two of Dawson County Sheriff Billy Carlisle's reelection campaign signs. No word yet on an arrest in that case.
