Roloff farm signs stolen, vandalized with bullets, feces

The Little People, Big World family’s farm has been vandalized over the past two months, as vandals have stolen and defaced signs with tools, bullets, and feces.

The Roloffs are offering a $1,000 reward after about $7,000 worth of damage was done “over the past two months at the Helvetia-area farm,” starting “when someone spread feces on the Roloff Farms sign on the property,” The Oregonian reports. “About two weeks ago, six holes were found in the sign and appeared to be caused by a hatchet or sledge hammer, wrote Washington County Sheriff’s Deputy Amy Chewning. Chewning’s report says the sign was also hit by two blasts from a shotgun last Wednesday,” and “10 ‘Roloff pumpkin patch’ signs had been taken in recent weeks.”

The paper reports that “[t]he sheriff’s office took reports on the incidents, but suspended their investigation because of lack of information about suspects.”

The farm is open to the public this month during pumpkin season.
