Political signs promoting three Republican candidates for office have been vandalized in recent days or are missing.

Signs for candidates Cole Noble, Jerry Bishop and Jacob Turk were damaged or are gone from posts holding the banners, according to Noble, a candidate for Ray County Sheriff.
“I want to get the community aware of it,” Noble said.

He contacted the Missouri State Highway Patrol Wednesday after learning that his sign posted across from the Hardin Mini-Mart was vandalized.
