PELHAM, N.Y. A Sixth Avenue resident's American flag and flagpole were stolen from his house sometime between 11:15 p.m. on Friday and 6 a.m. on Saturday, the Pelham Police Department reported. The resident told the police it was valued at $30.
No one at the address saw the theft so there is no description of the suspect. However, another resident at the address found a bicycle on her front porch as she left for work. She did not notice the American flag and pole were missing. When she returned home from work, she reported the suspicious circumstances, police said.
Police believe that whoever left the orange Striker X Avigo bicycle may also be responsible for the theft.
The woman who called aout the bicycle was home all evening, but did not hear anything.
Police were told that she has reason to believe her daughters ex-husband might be responsible because of ongoing issues between the two. Police were unable to contact the ex-husband and the bike was stored in the village yard.
