GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - The Glenn County Sheriff's Office is asking the public to stop stealing 'Road Closed' signs and barriers near flooded roads.

Authorities said that a number of signs, barricades and signal lights have gone missing from flooded roads in the area. 

They say that removing the signs is not only a safety issue, but it also costs taxpayer money to replace the signs and send rescue crews to the scene.

Stealing the signs is a crime, however, authorities say that people can return the stolen signs without penalty. 

The sheriff's office said people can drop off the signs in front of the Public Works offices in Orland and Willows.

Cool today with clouds clearing out. This weekend will be sunny with some record breaking heat in the North Valley. High in the mid-60s next week with high fire danger.
