CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. - When Charles Town resident Doug Lance received a notice that his sign was too large, he read the town's sign ordinance.
He admitted his for sale sign for his house is larger than allowed, but instead of taking it down, he got out his camera.
Lance shot dozens of pictures of other homes and businesses in violation of the town's ordinance.
"I would have shot more but I ran out of film," Lance told the town Council Monday night.
He shot pictures of signs too large, or located too close to the street. He had pictures of decorative flags flying from porches and lamp posts connected improperly.
