American Flags Stolen in Longview

Longview Police are asking for the public's help after some patriotic flags have turned up stolen from an area veterans organization.

Police say that late Thursday night someone stole several American flags and one POW flag in the area of the VFW hall on Marshall Avenue.

Flags were taken from a nearby business and area church as well.

Police say the suspects did it by cutting the lines from the bottom of the flagpoles. Members of the VFW hall are furious that any one would steal flags that have deep meaning to many Americans.

Anyone with information is asked to call Longview police.
