POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY-- It's a sign of solidarity, a sign seen all around rural Pottawatomie County. But over the last few weeks, 'Make America Great Again' signs continue to disappear.

"I'm for Donald Trump because he's not your typical politician," explained Bob Huntley, who lives near Lake Thunderbird. "We're sick of the thieving out there."

Bob was one of the first on board the Trump train, and has been handing out signs to family and friends for months.

"We posted signs out there, and for a long time they never got touched," he said. "When it showed that he was gonna be our nominee, signs ended up missing."

Between he and his family, Bob alone has had four signs stolen, two in a row taken from his dad's home off Rock Creek Road.

He's quick to note though, his own home sign still proudly stands.

"I live down a private dirt road," said Huntley. "(Thieves) are gonna be brave if they do try I just know that much."

Still, he and his neighbors are running out of signs, and running out of patience.

"I mean, I ain't gonna go messing with anybody's stuff," noted another neighbor who lost a sign. "So yeah, it's very frustrating."

"We're just trying to support our beliefs and what we want," said Huntley.

But everyone involved says they won't be deterred, as they aim to 'Make America Great Again.'
