Utica, NY (WIBX) - "Stop" or "Caution" were not apparently on the minds of two men who are now in police custody for stealing street signs.

Utica Police arrested Timothy Safford of Slayton Bush Lane in New Hartford and Eric Witten of Oswego for allegedly taking signs on South Park Drive in the early morning hours on December 27, 2012.

Both Witten and Safford are facing misdemeanor larceny charges.
