New Jersey Turnpike, Highway To Hell

According to the Pantagraph, the New Jersey Turnpike Authority is having a devil of a time preventing the repeated theft of mile marker 66.6 along the Garden State Parkway. A spokesperson for the Turnpike Authority admitted that they have zero solid leads, but they suspect the culprits to be college students on the prowl for some unique dorm room decor.

Within the past two years, the 66.6 mile marker sign has been stolen at least four times, and the state is getting tired of shelling out the $50 replacement fee. Some officials have suggesting adding an extra non-demonic digit, like 66.61, which would effectively kill the novelty and hopefully stave off the thefts, but as of late, no formal plans have been made.
