Just before 6pm on Wednesday, Bismarck Public Schools posted security footage to their Facebook page of someone stealing the flags from the flagpole of Murphy Elementary.

You can see the video above. Bismarck Public Schools in the comments of their post wrote:

We love patriotism, too, especially around the 4th of July - but we want our flags back. Please email becky_labella@bismarckschools.org if you can help identify who took the flags from Murphy Elementary School in NE Bismarck.

This is an unfortunate incident especially since purchasing American Flags is not that costly.

If you have any information, report it using the information provided above. For information on how to properly display and handle the American flag, we have a guide for you here.
