Salem man wants flag thief caught

Posted: Updated:
SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

A symbol of freedom was taken from a front porch in Salem, and the homeowner wants the crook to be caught.

Home security captured a man taking an American flag from Greg Bartland’s home.

“It's a teenager, young adult and just came in and busted [the flag] right off,” Bartland said.

Bartland said in the past the flags have been slashed five other times, but this is the first time they have been stolen.

“Since then we’ve installed higher definition cameras to catch them.”

Bartland said he’s called police and is still waiting to hear back.

“I’m going to continue to buy the flags and display them because I’m a patriot.”
