Flag stolen from Covina Police Department, California flag inverted

An American flag was stolen from outside the Covina Police Department Wednesday night.

There are a lot of security cameras, but they unfortunately didn't pick up the theft, but may have captured a pick-up truck that was driven by the suspect or suspects.

A captain with the department tweeted, "You won't see our flag flying today. Thieves stole Old Glory last night & inverted our California flag. Our flag... has flown proudly over Covina, flown at half staff out of respect for fallen heroes, flown to honor Veterans. We are deeply saddened."

No word yet on the suspect or suspects who stole the flag.
