The R Thief.

There's a thief in Greencastle, Indiana, that's obsessed with the letter R:

A consonant-loving thief has police and business owners baffled after dozens of Rs were stolen from signs around the community. "We've lost our Rs. And we want them back," said Randall Jones, president of Headley Hardware.

The weekend caper targeted gas stations, restaurants, repair shops and medical offices in the city of 10,000 people about 40 miles west of Indianapolis.

Here's the kicker:

The thief also nabbed half a dozen letters from a lighted marquee in front of a National Guard post.
