Serial Trump Sign Thief Leaves Note: 'Not Even A Great Wall Will Stop Me'

WALPOLE (CBS) -- A thief who climbed a tree to steal a Donald Trump campaign sign from the front yard of a home allegedly left a note insulting the homeowner for their support of the GOP candidate, saying they'd continue taking the signs if they replaced them.

Victor Scena, chairman of Walpole Republican Committee, said the sign was stolen from a home on Bullard Street in Walpole.

"As you may have noticed, I have stolen your sign for a third time," the note reads.

In a letter addressed to "Dear Mr. or Ms. Trump supporter," the person who stole the sign--and had stolen Trump signs from the same yard twice before--insulted the homeowner for thinking that moving the sign ten feet up into a tree would deter them.

"I can only believe you thought that you were outsmarting me when you put the sign on the tree," the thief wrote. "This is clearly false, because there is no way that a Trump supporter can outsmart anyone."

The note continues, insulting the homeowner for their support of the Republican presidential nominee.

"People of your kind are in fact, the most dimwitted, low level, simpletons that any well-developed nation has to offer," the thief wrote.

"I, and any other American who is against Mr. Trump, am better than you in every single way imaginable (especially in the areas of intelligence, reasoning, and problem solving)."

At the end, the thief threatens to strike again, saying, "Not even a great wall will stop me."
