Grand theft plywood

Rick Pyburn of Albany, Oregon, got tired of drivers speeding through his neighborhood so he enlarged a photo of a sheriff's office patrol car on vinyl and then posting it on plywood. It was put up in some bushes along Spring Hill Drive on a straight stretch past the Spring Hill Country Club. He says to he wanted to make "people realize that when they're driving down rural highways, they're driving through someone's neighborhood."

Someone stole it Sunday morning.

[H]e called the Benton County Sheriff's Office on Sunday morning after realizing it was gone.

"I called them to say I was reporting a stolen patrol car," Pyburn said.

They got a kick out of that, he said, because the sheriff's office knows about him and his cutout patrol car.

Rick's busy now, making more.
