CRANSTON, R.I. (WPRI) -- The Cranston Police Department has some good news for Miss Universe, as two stolen street signs have been recovered in good condition.
Olivia Culpo - the Cranston native who last year became the first American to be crowned Miss Universe since 1997 - returned to Rhode Island over the weekend to attend a ceremony at which her hometown street was dedicated in her namesake.
Cranston's Albert Avenue was renamed Olivia Culpo Way, and the official signs were unveiled at a Saturday morning ceremony. Less than 24 hours later, police learned that three of the signs had been stolen.
Two of those three signs were located on Monday by a Department of Transportation grass-cutting crew. They found the signs thrown alongside Route 295 north.
Police said the signs were in good condition and that the investigation is ongoing.
