WEATHERFORD (CBS 11 NEWS) – Suspects have been taking down flags from outside of homes and burning them. The crimes continue to outrage homeowners in Weatherford. Now the hunt is on for the vandals responsible.
Fire and police investigators looked down and saw the charred outline of the American Flag — still attached to the pole. The Stars & Stripes had been flying on the porch of a Weatherford home. The incident is the fourth burned flag call Weatherford police and fire responded to Monday.
“This one we just discovered within the hour,” said Fire Marshal Bob Hopkins.
Homeowners say they didn’t know what was going on. “We just drove up an hour ago and the fire was in the middle of the driveway,” explained Rowlee Johnson, who lives at the targeted home. “We had no idea what had happened.”
American flags are displayed throughout several northwest Weatherford neighborhoods. Since Friday, seven of those flags have been burned, three overnight Thursday or early Friday.
Flags have been thrown onto driveways and streets and set on fire. At one home, someone lowered a flag and let it burn on the flagpole.
