    This creep is still at it! I thought he finally gave up, but I guess I was wrong. Once a scumbag bandit sign criminal, always a scumbag bandit sign criminal! He has been a plague on the Northeast for over six years! I was leaving work around 3:30 this afternoon when I spotted these pink JUNK CARS signs along Tabor Avenue from Levick Street to Adams Avenue. Along Levick from Martins Mill Road to Tabor, along Harrison from Tabor to Howland, and Foulkrod to Howland.

    I stopped at Foulkrod and Tabor, but there are many more of these signs going to Adams Avenue and beyond.

    These signs were NOT there around 1:00 PM when I last passed through the neighborhood, so they had to have gone up between 1:00 and 3:30 PM. A man at a repair shop near Allengrove and Tabor told me he saw somebody putting them up this afternoon.

    Over 144 signs were removed. This brings the total to 2,868 signs removed in Lawncrest / Crescentville alone since I started keeping records in 2012. This means the creep can owe anywhere from $215,000 to $860,400 to the city in fines alone! Don’t you think our struggling schools could use that money? He has also been a plague on just about every other Northeast and North Philadelphia neighborhood, so the total can run into the tens of thousands. Why is this criminal not behind bars or bankrupted by the massive fines he owes the city?

    Got 12 more on Magee Avenue from Montour to Whitaker. This brings it to 3,007 just in this area alone. Dork must have a lot of money for card stock, toner, and meth-heads to hang them. Creep owes the city over $900K+ in fines now! Why does the city just leave this much money sitting on the table?

    I left on my lunch break from work at 11:30 AM and returned at 12:30 PM only to see these bright pink JUNK CARS signs stapled to every single utility pole along Tabor Avenue from Levick Street to Adams Avenue and beyond.

    This is the SECOND time since April 13th that this has happened. The last time, I removed over 260 signs from along Levick Street from Martins Mill Road to Tabor, along Tabor Avenue from Levick Street to F Street, along Adams Avenue from Whitaker to Rising Sun Avenue, and many side streets in between.

    So far, I have removed 3,094 of this particular offender’s signs alone!

    The signs read:

    JUNK CARS
    $200-$400
    CASH PAID
    215-740-6116.

    These bandit signs have been a plague upon this neighborhood for over six years!

    I managed to remove 87 of these signs this afternoon along Tabor Avenue from Levick to Allengrove. There are still many more south of Allenlrove that need to be removed. They are still on Tabor Avenue from Allengrove to Adams Avenue and beyond, Adams Avenue from Whitaker to Rising Sun and beyond. Affected zip codes are 19111, 19120, and 19124.

    Once again this same creep has hit the same neighborhood. I got 120 of this same idiot's signs in Lawncrest today. This brings the total up to 3,339 worth up to $1,001,700.00! Congratulations, creep! You surpassed the $1 million mark!

    Unfortunately, these creeps know that nothing will be done to them. It could be $10 million and it still wouldn't matter.

    It's our so called "representatives" who are really to blame. They'd much rather tax everyone on sugar, car registrations, alcohol, cigarettes, and now even containers. Why? Because they know that people will gripe a bit, protest a bit, and then just roll over and pay up.

    Meanwhile, the creeps just keep on hanging their signs all over the place...knowing that the most they'll ever get is a slap on the wrist.

    It makes me sick.

    Dude - these are impressice numbers. You need to hit up somebody at Philly.com (Ubinas? Bulk?) to do a piece on this. City passing up $1M by not even attempting to enforce their own laws???? Wtf?

    I doubt they'll be willing to spare anyone from covering the soda tax. Maybe a junior junior reporter just starting out. Something to fill up space on page 23 right below the ad for Philabundance.

    What about the guy with the "New Batteries" signs all over the city? He's taken to attaching the signs to orange construction cones and putting THEM all over the place.
    The city knows where this guy is located, yet does nothing.

    So ridiculous that the city isn't enforcing basic quality of life violations.
