If this is true…..what a jerk, right? stealing this? what goes through someone’s mind to do this?

I guess, at best, we can say this guy is competitive…and creative — if this is true.  Other words that come to mind (and my first thought): lame and pathetic.  But tell me, what is the FIRST thought you had when you read this article?

Connecticut real estate agent stole rival’s for sale signs, police say

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. – A Connecticut real estate agent has been charged with stealing a competitor’s for sale signs from the front lawns of area homes.

Police say 54-year-old Robert Toth, of Shelton, was charged Wednesday with third-degree larceny and first-degree criminal trespass. Toth owns American Home Realty in Trumbull.

Police say U.S. Asset Realty owner Jihad Shaheer complained in September that his signs had been stolen from more than a half-dozen sites in Bridgeport and from the front of two homes in Stratford.

Police tell the Connecticut Post that they later determined that Toth had been taking the signs. Toth had worked for Shaheer before opening his own real estate company.
