POLICE are looking for a Florida man who showed up naked at a home and stole an American flag.
The bizarre crime was caught on camera at the Ormond Beach home.
“Don’t know the backstory here but we’re looking to ID a naked man who stole an American flag from a home on John Anderson Drive in Ormond Beach last week,” said the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office on Facebook.
A bearded man appears dans la vidéo, using a hat to cover his private area as he walks up to the front porch of the home. He is later seen carrying the flag away.
The victim learned about the theft by her home security system around 6am.
The man is described as white with long brown hair and a full beard.
Deputies are asking people to contact them if they recognize the man.
Sur les réseaux sociaux, people have posted their own theories on what the man was doing when he stole the flag.

“Maybe someone stole the poor guy’s clothes! At least he was trying to stay covered – bless it!!!” wrote one user.
“Looks like he stole the flag to cover his naked body lol. I mean if I ended up naked outside I’d steal the first thing I see that could cover my body too,” wrote another.
“Leave the man alone. He’s probably embarrassed enough plus now he’s online naked to make the embarrassment worse.”
The incident occurred last week on March 3.
