Anonymous vandal sends Sedgwick County $300 for damaged highway signs

January 14, 2011


— A remorseful vandal has sent a Kansas county $300 in cash to pay for damaged and stolen highway signs.

Sedgwick County Public Works director David Spears says someone attached an unsigned letter to three crisp, $100 bills and sent it to the county yard in Andale.

The Wichita Eagle reports the letter asks that the money be used to repair or replace road signs that were damaged or stolen in the past.

The one-paragraph letter also requests the money be donated to a charity if it landed in the wrong hands.

Chief financial officer Chris Chronis says the money will be marked as a miscellaneous donation and credited to the highway fund.

Sedgwick County staff members say they've never seen anything like the donation.
