Law officials in tiny Hanf (“Hemp”), Germany are battling thieves who keep stealing signs that mark the entrance to the village. Thieves have struck repeatedly this year, with five place-name signs having been stolen at once in the most recent incident in early October, a city spokesperson told Bild.
