---- — BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) — A Bristol man is free on bond after police found 30 stolen street signs, two traffic barrels and two traffic cones in his house.

The Kingsport Times-News reports police spotted street signs nailed to the walls of Daniel Cross' home when they responded to a call about a domestic incident on Saturday morning.

According to the arrest report, police saw an orange traffic barrel and traffic cone in a corner and found more signs in a pile under a child's bed.

Cross told officers the signs were given to him by a friend. He said he was going to decorate with them.

Transportation officials still are determining their value.

Cross was charged with receiving or concealing stolen property.

His number was not listed in the telephone directory.
