BLUEFIELD, W.Va. (AP) — Frustrated with the prostitutes who he says walk in front of his home day and night, a West Virginia man has put up signs urging them to take their business elsewhere.
Jeffery Blankenship tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph (http://bit.ly/2gQebEE ) that prostitutes walk along his street at all hours, seeking clients.
Three weeks ago, he began putting up anti-trespassing signs outside his Bluefield home, including one that reads, “Attention prostitutes … Do not walk by this house 1000x a day waving your hand.”
The signs also warn that he has set up video surveillance equipment and sends any footage of suspected illegal activity to the police.
