Connecticut realtor accused of stealing 'for sale' signs

A Trumbull Realtor has been charged with stealing a competitor's "for sale" signs from the front lawns of area homes.

Police say 54-year-old Robert Toth of Shelton, owner of American Home Realty in Trumbull, was charged Wednesday with third-degree larceny and first-degree criminal trespass.

Police say Jihad Shaheer, the owner of U.S. Asset Realty in Stratford, complained in September that his signs had been stolen from more than a half-dozen sites in Bridgeport and from in front of two homes in Stratford.

Police tell The Connecticut Post that they later determined that Toth, who had worked for Shaheer before opening his own realty company, had been taking the signs.

Toth declined comment.
