(WBNG) -- The Delaware County Sheriff's Office is warning against damaging or stealing political signs ahead of the 2020 Election.

The sheriff's office said in a news release removing, alerting or defacing a political sign is punishable under New York State law.

“I have been getting an increased amount of complaints regarding political signs being stolen from lawns and private property… people who engage in this behavior are subject to criminal prosecution”, Delaware County Sheriff Craig DuMond said.

DuMond also said surveillance cameras can and will be used to assist law enforcement if any political signs are taken or defaced.
