NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police are searching for a man they say swiped seven American flags from homes on Independence Day.

The thefts happened at about 5:30 a.m. Friday in Brooklyn’s Windsor Terrace neighborhood.

Police say Saturday that in each incident, the man grabbed the flag from its flagpole before riding away.

They describe the man as wearing blue jeans shorts and a bandana.

Surveillance video shows the man enter one home through the front gate, take the flagpole off a stoop, remove the flag and leave the pole behind before riding away.
