Thefts reported on Coast Boulevard

Residents of Coast Boulevard say they are seeing a rash of thefts in recent weeks, from a bicycle taken from a secured garage to flags stolen off a porch.

The latter was documented on a home security camera and the footage submitted to the La Jolla Light. The video shows someone climbing up to the porch on which an American flag was posted and taking it. After climbing down, the person picks up what looks like another flag on the ground.

The person’s race and gender could not be discerned from the video.
