A burned American flag was discovered on a statue in front of Colorado Springs City Hall early Tuesday morning, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department. An investigation revealed the flag to be the one typically displayed in front of City Hall.
Investigators with the department have checked surveillance cameras to no avail, says CSPD Public Information Officer Lieutenant Catherine Buckley. Buckley says they currently have no suspects for what she says is a misdemeanor crime.
No note or graffiti was left behind to signal who may have committed the act, but Buckley says "someone's probably bragging about it" on social media. She says the department will follow up on any tips that might come in.
CSPD's non-emergency number is 719-444-7000.
