A Connecticut real estate agent has been charged with stealing a competitor’s “for sale” signs from the front lawns of homes. Police say 54-year-old Robert Toth of Shelton was charged Wednesday with third-degree larceny and first-degree criminal trespass. Toth owns American Home Realty in Trumbull. Police said US Asset Realty owner Jihad Shaheer complained in September that his signs had been stolen from more than a half-dozen sites in Bridgeport and from two homes in Stratford. Toth, who declined comment, had worked for Shaheer before opening his own real estate company. (AP)
