Stop sign thief makes right-35 years later

It's a teen-aged prank -- made right.

A man has sent a $600 cashier's check to the Utah Department of Transportation.

The check is to cover the cost of a stop sign stolen 35 years ago from a Salt Lake County road.

U-DOT officials say a letter apologizing for the theft was signed by "a very foolish youth."

In the letter, the one-time thief says he prayed no one was hurt because of the missing stop sign.

Officials say the 600 bucks will cover the installation of three new stop signs.
