HEBRON, Conn. (AP) _ An 80-year-old Connecticut woman has been charged with larceny and breach of peace after tearing down political signs that included an image of President Obama with an Adolph Hitler-style mustache.

Nancy Lack of Hebron tells WVIT-TV she was offended by that picture and took down three posters that were being hung last Thursday near the post office on Main Street.

Workers for presidential candidate Lyndon LaRouche, who were putting up the signs, called police.

Lack says she knew she would get in trouble, but lived through World War II and was angry that someone would portray the president as a Nazi.

She was released on a promise to appear in Superior Court on Oct. 23.
