BRUSLY, La. (AP) — Brusly Mayor Joey Normand found a lot more than just the morning newspaper on his front lawn Sunday.

The Advocate reports the mayoral incumbent found 21 of his campaign signs had been ripped up from the yards of his neighbors in Brusly and tossed on his front lawn during the middle of the night Saturday.

Law enforcement officials say they have launched an investigation into the incident.

Normand said that while some people believe the incident could just be a prank by some local teens, he suspects someone with a vendetta against him might have been involved because only his signs were targeted.

Normand, who has no party affiliation, is facing Republican Rusty Daigle in the Nov. 6 mayoral race.
