BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — New York State Police have charged an Amherst woman with stealing Trump/Pence political signs off lawns in Clarence.

Olivia Cinquinio, 19, is charged with petit larceny.

Troopers responded to Brookhaven Drive just before 9 p.m. last night. While patrolling the area, the person who called police started following Cinquinio's vehicle on Main Street.

State police stopped Cinquinio's vehicle after she turned onto Transit Road and found more than a half dozen signs inside. She confessed to taking signs off multiple yards, according to troopers.

Cinquinio is due in Clarence Town Court on November 3.
