What should happen to someone who "saves" a parking spot they didn't even shovel out in the first place?

When it snows in South Boston you're allowed to "save" your parking spot on the street (with a cone, trash can, etc.) after you dig out your car.  I'm opposed to it as a general rule (for all of these reasons), but given the absurd amount of snow this winter I've come to terms with it.

For the past month this is what the view outside my living room window looked like (notice the stop sign buried in the middle of the pile):

The other night some backhoes came and cleared off the street corner.  After being kept awake till 4:30 am by the constant "beep, beep, beep" noise they make while in reverse (which sounds exactly like an alarm clock, by the way), this is what I saw when I finally got out of bed the next day:

Some d-bag had the audacity to "save" the spot the city spent all night clearing, implying that he or she actually shoveled it out themselves.

What should happen to this person?

My first thought was just to go grab the plastic bin and throw it in the dumpster behind the building, but that doesn't seem severe enough a penalty.  In a perfect world this liar would suffer same fate I proposed for people who don't clean up after their dogs.

Please send me a tweet, or comment below or on Facebook with any suggestions/ideas you might have.
