A caller told police Friday that several street signs near Broadway and Malone streets had been stolen, according to a police report.

The police report indicates the thefts happened Wednesday. Police said they’re reviewing footage from the area of the incidents. The city’s streets department was notified so the signs could be replaced, police said.

Old Town Road street signs have been reported stolen around the country this summer, seemingly because of rapper Lil Nas X’s song of the same name, but there is no Old Town Road in Denton.
