LUBBOCK, Texas — A Texas man was caught on camera stealing a veteran’s U.S. Marine Corps flag from his front yard.
“I immediately thought, ‘thank God my wife made me take those alerts off,’ because I was not very happy at the moment,” Maldonado told KXAN.
Neighbors said the suspect was seen in the area a few times recently, KXAN reported.
Maldonado did not file a police report.
“The flag has sentimental (value) for me but it’s not important,” he told KXAN. “I can always get another flag, and if someone really wanted something like that I wouldn’t have a problem giving it to them, but when you come and steal it, you know, it’s just not right.”
