VIDEO: Campbell police seeking help identifying flag thieves


CAMPBELL (KRON) — The Campbell Police Department is currently investigating the theft of two American Flags in the early morning hours of May 31, 2016.

Surveillance video captured two suspects walking up to a home on Harrison Avenue in Campbell.

One of the suspects entered the fenced-in front yard and stole an American Flag and flag pole. While making his getaway, he unsuccessfully attempted to jump over the three foot gate. The suspect laying on the ground moaning in pain can be seen and heard in the video. After he limped away with the stolen flag, the second suspect stole a different American flag from a separate home located down the street.

The suspects are described as white males in their 20’s. The suspect who fell during the theft, was wearing a dark colored t-shirt, light brown pants, and a baseball hat. The second suspect was wearing what appears to be a blue Golden State Warriors t-shirt and dark pants.

It is believed the suspects were coming from one of the Downtown Campbell establishments and walking to a nearby home.
