Ledyard — One member of the Harvard University crew team was charged early Monday morning with stealing several street signs, including a stop sign, state police said.
Ledyard police were called to the area of 94 Military Highway at 1:53 a.m. for a report of stolen signs and encountered what police said were several intoxicated youths who fled when police arrived.
Police charged William H. Hakim, 21, of Belmont. Mass. with third-degree criminal mischief and sixth-degree larceny.
Hakim is a junior coxswain who majors in East Asian studies.
Lachlan D. Macintosh, 21, of British Columbia, Canada was charged with third-degree criminal mischief, sixth-degree larceny and breach of peace.
He is the brother of fellow crew member, Alex Macintosh.
Both were released on non-surety bonds and expected to appear at a later date in New London Superior Court.
