PLATTEVILLE, WI (KWWL) — When Kevin Leighty went to get the paper Friday morning, he noticed something was off with the Donald Trump sign he and his wife had put in the front yard of their Platteville, Wisconsin home.
The frame holding it was there, but there was no sign.
They reviewed surveillance video from cameras they have on their house, and there they found a man, dressed only in underwear, taking a torch to their Trump sign.
They mystery of who this man was didn’t last long.
“Then we’re watching, and it was like, oh, I think that’s our neighbor, our tenant. And sure enough, it was,” says Jane Leighty.
They called the police who also reviewed the tape, then shortly after got a confession out of the man.
He apologized to the Leighty’s, but was kicked out shortly after.
“When you rent to somebody and they’re your next door neighbor and you’ve been kind and decent to them, it’s like really? Why are you doing this to us?” she said.
