A local politician is accused of stealing his opponent's signs.
A surveillance camera hidden in a tree captured the images of someone stealing a campaign sign from a street corner off the Southwest Freeway in Meadows Place.
The sign belonged to Kris Allfrey. He's running for Fort Bend County Independent School District Trustee Position 5.
"Well, I put up a second sign and it was gone within 24 hours," said Allfrey.
He had three signs stolen from that intersection.
Allfrey set up a hidden camera because he wanted to see who taking his signs.
"I never expected to see an elected official of any sort on that camera -- especially not a sitting school board member," said Allfrey.
Allfrey said the man on the camera is Bruce Albright who is a current Fort Bend ISD trustee running for reelection.
But Albright is not running against Allfrey.
Removing campaign signs is against the law.
