I've got my house for sale and I have an info tube on the sign that I put papers in to say what it costs and what it comes with, etc.  Someone who lives in the neighborhood is coming by and taking each and every info paper in the tube.  We've seen the same SUV stop and get a paper several times and a couple kids where loitering by my sign one day.  The theft of the papers has been every day over a 3 week period.

Any ideas on how to get this to stop ?

Does the SUV come by at the same day/time? If so, be ready and follow it. Might be a realtor who doesn't like FSBO.

Without several legal repercussions? No, all you can do is surveillance and calls the cops. Setting up a game camera or video capture system might get you some plates or other pictures.

Well, I would have put a camera out 2 1/2 weeks ago at the very least.

Call them out when they exit the vehicle to get the papers, then follow them.

Run out bucknaked waving your AR in the AR while firing off some rounds?  I think that would scare them off permanently.

Print bogus crap on the papers in the tube, better yet take there pictures and put them on papers in the tube .

Sounds like a bad neighborhood.  Good luck selling your house in the midst of this apparent crime wave.

May want to check to see if it's someone from code enforcement.  Where I live they drive around and tear down signs that don't meet their standards.
