SAUKVILLE — A 51-year-old man was issued citations by the Ozaukee County Sheriff's Department after he drove over and damaged a 71-year-old man's political sign.

A man has made several reports with the Ozaukee County Sheriff's Department after his "Veterans for Biden" sign was driven over and damaged.

By the third incident, the property owner had installed a trail camera that picked up photos of the vehicle driving over the signs and damaging his yard, the sheriff's department says.

Those images allowed the Ozaukee County Sheriff's Department to identify the vehicle, and eventually the man who had been damaging the signs.

The Ozaukee County Sheriff's Department brought that man, 51-year-old Daniel Seyfert, into custody where he admitted to intentionally damaging the signs. He was then issued citations for Criminal Damage to Property, Hit and Run Property Damage Adjacent to a Highway, and Failure to Report an Accident to Police.

In addition, restitution was requested to pay for the damages caused to owner's property.
