A pediatrician from Perinton, New York was arrested in Wayne County for allegedly stealing lawn signs calling for the repeal of the state’s stringent new gun law. Annamaria Kontor, 46, of Valewood Run, was charged with petit larceny on Thursday after the doctor was allegedly seen swiping “Repeal NY’s S.A.F.E. Act” signs from the lawns of houses on East Townline Road in Williamson, according to the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Barry Virts said deputies responded to a call from a homeowner earlier in the day and tracked the doctor to her office, Williamson Pediatrics, on Old Ridge Road, where officers found five of the signs in an outdoor trash bin.
Kontor was issued a ticket to appear in Williamson Town Court on Jan. 15, Virts said.
