Back page: Woman fights fines over displaying crime watch sign

CANONSBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman is fighting possible $500 daily fines for posting a handmade crime watch sign in her window warning drug dealers to stay away. Canonsburg Mayor Bob Kipp says Cindy Davis received the notice of having a “non-confirming sign in a residential area” after at least one person complained the sign may be making it harder for neighbors to sell their property. The (Washington) Observer-Reporter says the sign says, “Thank you CBG police. Neighbors watch for drug dealers. You will be turned in.” A district judge continued Thursday’s hearing on the citation indefinitely. The mayor says Davis could resolve things amicably if she’d just take down the sign until January, when borough council is expected to update and improve the sign ordinance. Davis says she’s fighting to publicize the Canonsburg Crime Watch Facebook group.
