The college town of Providence, RI has charged a city worker, Gary Sepe, with stealing traffic signs and selling them for scraps. Gary Sepe was caught in the act when he was identifying street signs, road signs, and other traffic signs to stick his five fingers on.
Gary Sepe, the 45 year old city worker was charged with a misdemeanor count of fraudulent conversion of property last week. As another consequence, the city worker was also suspended from work without pay by the Department of Public Works.
Gary’s brother, Alan Sepe, is Providence’s acting director of public property- quite embarrassing. The city councilman Michael Correia saw Gary Sepe was at a scrap yard removing traffic road signs from the Public Works Department truck and going into the business.
