Police in South Jersey hope someone knows who stole a one of those signs that tells motorists how fast they are driving. The sign is this case is worth thousands.

Overnight Monday into Tuesday, someone stole a “No Parking” sign from the 2500 block of Cedarbridge Road, near Route 9, in Northfield, said Northfield Police.

 The street sign theft was bad enough but attached to the sign pole was a “Speed Shield” device — worth around $5,500 — that uses radar to show how fast a motorist is driving while collecting traffic information, said police. The thief took the entire pole, sign and “shield.”

The 17-inch tall, 24-inch wide 20-pound sign has the serial number 15990911030321 and could have a Northfield tag inside, said police.
