"We put new ones up and all of a sudden they disappear," Road Agent Dave Reinhold said Monday.
"It's all over. We're probably missing 25 to 30 signs. Hopefully, someone will notice them out in the woods and we'll get them back," he said.
Epping police are investigating.
Street sign thefts have been a problem in nearby Raymond as well.
Raymond police said the theft reports included street signs, stop signs and town line marker signs from all areas of town. The total loss in Raymond is close to $1,000.
He said their case remains under investigation and there have been no arrests.
"They're not cheap to replace. They also serve a purpose, getting ambulances and fire personnel to emergencies if necessary," Jordan said.
At this point, he said the cost to replace the stolen signs will have to be included in the highway department's new budget proposal.
