Watch: Three tourists held for stealing road sign

On the wee hours of April 9, one Frenchman and two Irishmen were held in Riga by the Municipal Police for demolishing and then taking off with a road sign, the police told the press.

The tipsy tourists were seen on Riga's numerous CCTV cameras in the process of taking down a road sign on the corner of Merķeļa and Krišjāņa Barona street, and then taking off to Vērmanes garden and hiding the sign at a public transportation stop when they realized the police are on to them.

They tried to deny they did it, but of course you can't argue against video recordings.
