Two Charged in Thefts of Flagpoles from Carroll American Legion
Two Lake City men are accused of stealing more than 500 flagpoles from the Carroll American Legion over Memorial Day weekend. The Carroll Daily Times Herald reports that 37-year-old Christopher Lee Gay and 20-year-old Chance Abel Kinney were arrested on Sunday. The men were charged with first- and second-degree theft and were released from jail on a promise to appear in court. Police Chief Jeff Cayler says investigators are seeking a third suspect. The suspects allegedly stole two trailers with an estimated 550 metal flagpoles and tried to sell them at two salvage yards.
