The Edgewood Heritage Park in downtown Edgewood was fell victim to theft last weekend.

Heritage Park employees reported that a 6-foot round Gulf Oil sign was taken from the back wall of the old Gilliam Station early last week.

The sign was attached to the back of the station approximately 10 feet off the ground. The sign has a value of about $1,000.

Gilliam Station is located on the corner of the park on Main Street and approximately 100 feet from a street light. It would have taken at least two people and a 10-foot ladder to take down the sign.

The Heritage Park is located one block from the police station.

As of presstime, the Edgewood Police Department could not be reached for comment.
