The banner, which said “Register to vote here, Vision for Hoboken, Ruben Ramos for Mayor,” measured three feet high and 15 feet wide, and was attached to the fence with at least eight zip ties, according to a police report.
The banner was worth approximately $330, said the report.
Ramos also told police that two weeks ago, two sections of bunting, worth around $60 each, were stolen from his campaign headquarters’ windows. According to the report, Ramos did not report those thefts at the time, but included them in his statement when the banner went missing.
Police reportedly searched the area for any surveillance cameras, but were unsure if they would be able to find any. – Dean DeChiaro
