Man arrested for stealing Trump sign from town hall in Burke County

A Lenoir man has been arrested for stealing a campaign sign at the Rutherford College Town Hall, 350 Malcolm Boulevard in the town of Rutherford College on Wednesday, Oct. 26, according to Burke Co. deputies. 

Caleb Thomas Eanes, 21, has been charged with larceny of a political sign violation after deputies say he stole a Donald Trump for Election sign from the Rutherford College early election poll site.  
Witnesses say Eanes took the sign and then drove off with it. Once deputies were given a description of Eanes and the car he used, they were able to obtain a warrant for Eanes arrest.
