Surveillance Video of Campaign Poster Torn Down

Updated: Monday, April 28 2014, 07:12 PM EDT

Controversy has struck the race for Baltimore City Sheriff, as one candidate accuses his opponent of dirty politics for allegedly stealing campaign signs.

Surveillance video from a Baltimore store shows a man taking down a "Brooks for Sheriff" sign. The man on the video is Rob Lapin, a candidate for State Delegate and a supporter of Richard Parker, Brook's opponent.

The Brooks camp claims they spoke to several store owners along the business area of Washington and MLK and were told that both Parker and Lapin had been taking down signs. They've now filed criminal complaints against the two.

Parker denies any involvement in any campaign heist.  He calls these accusations a "desperate" tactic by Donovan Brooks and his campaign. Lapin told FOX45 the store owner gave him permission to take down the sign, saying he would switch his support to Parker instead of Brookes.

In the video Lapin appears to chat with the owner before making a purchase and then calmly leaving the store.
