"Brochin for Senate" signs stolen by opposition

Police confirm James Dejuliis charged with theft

PARKVILLE, Md. - State Sen. Jim Brochin's campaign manager accused three men Saturday for removing “Brochin for Senate” signs from the Parkville area.

Police confirm one of the men arrested is James Ronald Dejuliis, husband of democratic state senate candidate Connie Dejuliis. Court records show James Dejuliius was charged with theft under $1,000 on May 10.

Connie Dejuliis is set to face off with incumbent state Senator Jim Brochin in the June 24 democratic primary.

The caller told police he saw the men taking four signs near Loch Bend Drive and East Joppa Road around 3:15 p.m. Saturday. The suspects were still at the location when police arrived and returned the signs to the victim.

Baltimore County Police spokeswoman Cathy Batton said the other two men will be identified Monday if they are formally charged.

In a statement police said, “Chief Johnson is committed to the strict enforcement of election laws, and any campaign sign violations that occur during this time of year will be investigated thoroughly.”
