United States Flag Stolen
Last night, Officer Reardon was sent to a Sunset Avenue residence for a report of a stolen United States flag. The homeowner reported that sometime since Wednesday morning the flag was stolen from outside her home and a note was left behind in its place. The note was left by someone who claimed to be from the “American Patriotic Liberation Front.” According to the note, the flag had been stolen with the intention of burning it.
We have had no other reports of flags being stolen in town or in surrounding communities. Additionally, an Internet search of this alleged group produced no leads. If you’re not on Google, do you really exist? Any citizens with information relative to this incident can either call 413-259-3000 or email the Amherst Police Department.
