SPRING HILL, FL – On Sunday, September 25-2022 at approximately 1 a.m., a Hernando County Sheriff’s detective was driving home from an off-duty detail when he observed a suspicious van in the area of Hexam Road and Commercial Way.

The driver of the van had stopped near the intersection and then turned off the vehicle’s headlights. The detective then observed sparks emanating from the area where traffic lights are in the process of being installed.

Additional deputies soon arrived on scene where they observed three individuals using a saw to cut the traffic lights off the poles. Three traffic lights had already been placed inside the van by the suspects.

According to authorities, all three men admitted to stealing the traffic lights. Each traffic light was valued at $5,000.
