17, 2010 - Sparks Sign and Trailer Stolen
Requests Return of Property
Sen. John Sparks (D-Norman)
was shocked at the theft of his large
sign and flat-bed trailer. The sign is
a two-sided, wooden structure with the
Sparks for Senate logo printed
on each of the large sides. The sign is
approximately 10 feet long and 7 feet
tall. The trailer is a 16 foot double-axle
The sign and trailer had been displayed
on a lot on SE 12th in Norman, south of
Lindsey Street when they were noticed
missing Wednesday, September 15th. Sparks
has reported the theft to the Norman Police
Says Sen. Sparks, I
am disappointed that someone would steal
the large sign and trailer. I am particularly
saddened at the loss of the sign, which
was crafted by a friend in 2006 and has
become my signature at local parades.
Sparks added, If the thief wanted
a sign that badly, I would have happily
given him one.
The Sparks campaign has
no knowledge of who may have stolen the
trailer and sign. Says Sparks, This
has been a distraction, but I am returning
to the campaign trail where I am talking
to voters about the future of Oklahoma.
Hopefully the future will also include
the return of my sign and trailer.
