Three local high school students were arrested early Sunday for allegedly stealing a street sign in Martinez.
Jordan Day, 17, of Martinez (from left), Matthew Tuschen, 17, of Martinez, and Ross Weglarz, 17, of Grovetown, were all charged with theft by taking.
Around 2 a.m. Sunday, a Columbia County deputy pulled over the teens in a blue Dodge Durango driven by Day and observed a county street sign in the rear of the vehicle, a sheriff’s report says.
The three teens were taken in for questioning and admitted using an Allen wrench to steal the county street sign at Collins Drive and Jessie Road. Two of the teens told authorities they attend Grovetown High School while the third attends Aquinas High School, the report said.
