GREELEY - Two billboards in Greeley that have angered residents have been taken down, but Lamar Advertising says they are down simply because the contract expired.

The billboards show three men dressed in traditional Native American attire with the words "Turn in your arms. The government will take care of you."

The residents who bought the billboards asked to remain anonymous.

The billboards were on U.S. 34 in southwest Greeley and U.S. 85 on the east side of town.
