The husband of state Sen. Bethany Hall-Long (D-Middletown) turned himself in to police Thursday morning after stealing state Republican Party campaign signs.

Dana Long was processed and arraigned at the Middletown Police Department on a misdemeanor theft charge.

Republican Party activists filmed Long early Wednesday morning uprooting signs along Del. 299. He eventually drove away before officers arrived.

Middletown Police say Sen. Bethany Hall-Long’s (D-Middletown) husband is behind a rash of about 56 stolen Republican Party campaign signs across the city.

And Sen. Hall-Long now confirms that's true.

A video released early Wednesday shows a man that appeared to be Dana Long with a handful of signs pulled from the ground nearby. The signs were placed along Del. 299 near the Route 1 intersection, police say.
