[ISN] Loose gorilla? Prankster messing with traffic warning sign in Loomis

Somebody is having a little fun with a traffic warning sign in Loomis.
Josh Carroll, 19, noticed the first message last week near Wells Avenue
and Barton Road that read "Smoke Weed Everyday." The second read
"Caution Loose Gorilla!" -- and the third was profane.
Somebody was able to type a new message onto the sign on three separate
nights, said Carroll, who lives close to the mobile digital warning
Tony Firenzi, senior engineer for the Placer County Water Agency, said
the sign is supposed to have a message warning residents that Wells
Avenue will be closed in the future for pipeline construction. The sign
is being operated by a private contractor performing the pipeline work
for a commercial developer on the PCWA project.
Firenzi said it took some technical skill and a keyboard for the
prankster to change the message.
