I was going to guesss an animal.  What about a dog on a leash that got loose and maybe the leash wrapped around the sign?

My first guess would be some other company like the gas company had to move through that area, maybe with some sort of equipment, and knocked it apart.  If you live in an area where homes are very close together, it could have been a furniture delivery.  If it is fairly close to the street, it could be that a work truck hit it (that happened to our Scoop your Poop sign, it got ripped off by the mirror on the UPS truck).

My other guess would be teenagers with nothing better to do.

Do you see anything like tire marks nearby? Has any of your neighbors been having work done on their house?

I wouldn’t be too paranoid because the bad guys don’t usually tell you when they are getting ready to rob you. They just rob you.  Chances are, there is a very innocent explanation for it.

…if someone were watching your house (to break in), then they would have known you weren’t home and just broken in. They wouldn’t leave you some sort of sign so you would know they were coming back. Robbers and burglers tend to bank on the element of surprise.

I wouldn’t be too paranoid about it. It is really annoying though.

Are you facing a street where there’s lot of foot traffic? Like a PP, I’m inclined to think it was just some obnoxious teens.

Yeah, my guess would be obnoxious teenagers (or adults!) as well. If someone was actually watching you, they wouldn’t leave you a sign, they would just rob you.

Horseradish:  Agree. Robbers or boogie men just rob you, they dont screw with your sign. Keep your eyes open when you get out of the car, dont talk on the phone on your way in the house, pay attention to your surroundings (good advise anywhere, at anytime), but Im sure it was nothing 🙂
