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. Four to five signs have disappeared each year “over the past few decades,” the city said. Hanf, population 230, is located in the northwestern district of North Rhine-Westphalia.
