The two men, Jerry Kerley, director of water resources for the city of Crossville and William Harwell of the Crossville airport were charged following an investigation by the District Attorney's office.  A neighbor of the Mockingbird Drive house caught part of the incident on video and got the truck's license number. The truck was registered to Jerry Kerley who is the father of Crossville city councilman Jesse Kerley.

Security video from the Crossville airport shows the two men leaving from there prior to the time of the alleged incident and then returning to the airport a short time later. District Attorney General Bryant Dunaway confirmed that the stolen signs were recovered on the airport property.  

According to court records, both men are represented by attorney Jimmy Smith.

Ironically, Harwell had spoken out against political signs at the June city council meeting including specifically the signs at Mockingbird Drive. Video of those comments are below.
