Burlington police say surveillance video captured Pride flag burning

Local News

Police say surveillance video captured a person walking up to a Burlington home and lighting a Pride flag on fire earlier this month.

On June 1, a couple on Bright Street discovered the charred remains of the flag on their front porch.

Police have released two pieces of video of the incident and are hoping the public can help identify the culprits. 

One video shows a lone individual walking directly towards the home just after 4:30 a.m. June 1st. The person appears to light the flag on fire without hesitation and walking away toward Riverside Avenue.

Police say they also want to talk to a potential witness seen riding a bicycle on Riverside Avenue headed toward Intervale Road around the time of the incident.

Anyone with information should call the Burlington Police Department at (802) 540-2288.
