NAUGATUCK, CT (WFSB) -
More than 500 flags for veterans were stolen from a cemetery in Naugatuck in broad daylight while people worked nearby.
Now, police are looking for the people responsible for the theft.
Four veterans from the VFW Post No. 1946 were replacing the flags on the gravestones at the St. James Cemetery in anticipation of Veterans Day on Saturday morning.
When they said they suddenly realized four full boxes filled with 576 flags in total were stolen. The veterans said they were worth more than $400.
"That those flags can be stolen from right underneath them while they were there working on it, I just couldn't believe it would happen," said veteran John DeBisschop.
The veterans reported the theft to police, but they are just asking those responsible to return their flags.
"We need those flags so we have enough come Memorial Day weekend and that's what we want," DeBisschop said. "We just want our flags."
This weekend's theft was not the first time that flags were stolen from the St. James Cemetery, which is the final resting place for more than 1,800 veterans.
The incident occurred after 9/11 when someone stole about 1,000 flags. No arrests have been made in this case.
Members of the VFW Post No. 1946 said they change out the flags at the St. James Cemetery twice a year, Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
"Regardless of how senseless an act it was, nothing will diminish the pride we take in our veterans and the reverence we have for them," Naugatuck Mayor Bob Mezzo said.
No arrests have been made in this weekend's theft. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Naugatuck Police Department at 203-729-5222.
