BRIGHTON, Vt. - A Vermont town is considering a reward for help finding whoever stole a brand new electronic sign that tells drivers how fast they're going.

Brighton's $3,200 sign was so new it hadn't been insured yet. Town Assistant Joel Cope says it was last seen on Sept. 2.

Cope says the police chief used a matching grant to help buy the sign. It had been erected on a street heading to Brighton State Park because nearby residents had complained about speeders.

The Caledonian Record reports the select board is considering a reward for information that would lead to the recovery of the sign.
