Flags Stolen from Echo's Main Street

Posted: Updated:

ECHO, Ore.  - A small Eastern Oregon town is short 15 American flags.

The flags were stolen earlier this week from Main Street in Echo.
Echo's City Administrator Diane Berry says it's likely they were stolen at night.
The city of Echo kept the flags on display after the Fourth of July because it was time for the all-school and all-city reunion held every five years.
Berry says she wonders whether someone was trying to send a message to the city and says she "can't imagine why a mature person would conceive of doing that."
