One of the signs meant to celebrate Clemson University's 2016 National Championship win has gone missing.

WYFF in Greenville is reporting that Clemsonbarstool posted on Instagram a screengrab of a Snapchat reading "Pulled the heist of the year."

WYFF reached out to the SCDOT about the Instagram post; the SCDOT told them the sign was on Highway 76, near Tri-County Technical College. The SCDOT also told WYFF that the sign has been missing for about a week and a half.

WYFF reports that SCDOT is planning to replace the sign Thursday.

Andrew Leaphart, from the SCDOT, told WYFF that each sign costs about $200, and is installed with anti-theft bolts to prevent the signs from being taken.

There are more than 10 signs across the state. Leaphart says a sign on Highway 123 has already been replaced after being taken.

Pickens County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Creed Hashe told WYFF that if someone is caught stealing a sign they could face a simple larceny charge. He also told WYFF that if someone is found with a sign they could face a charge of possession of stolen goods.
