Robbery - Theft

Man who believes Sandy Hook killings were a hoax stole memorial signs in Conn., NJ

Police in northern Virginia have arrested a man accused of stealing memorial signs for victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

Authorities say 28-year-old Andrew Truelove was motivated by a belief that the Sandy Hook shootings were a hoax.

Herndon police say one sign was stolen from Mystic, Connecticut, and the other was stolen from a playground in Mantoloking, New Jersey. They were both dedicated to Chase Kowalski and Grace McDonnell, two of the 20 first-graders killed in the 2012 massacre.

Police said Friday that Truelove was arrested at a home in Herndon where he was renting a room, and charged with possession of stolen property, with charges pending in the other states.

An attorney representing Truelove in a separate case did not immediately return a message.
