BURBANK -- Police are searching for someone who stole several American
flags this week and vandalized others.
On Wednesday and Thursday, police received at least six complaints of
thefts and at least one report from a witness who saw someone take a flag
from a front yard and tear it up, Burbank Police Lt. Kevin Krafft said.
Many of the reports came from neighborhoods above Glenoaks Boulevard,
between Olive Avenue and the Glendale border, Krafft said. Complaints
also came from neighborhoods near Alameda Avenue and Victory Boulevard.
People seemed to be running and stealing the small flags from front
porches, Krafft said.
