SLCPD Seeking Tips After Multiple Pride Flags Burned
SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department is asking for help identifying the person or people responsible for burning multiple Pride flags.
This investigation started at 8:02 a.m., on Monday, July 3, 2023, when officers responded to a home near 850 South Washington Street after the homeowner reported their Pride flag had been cut down and burned.
Officers responded and learned that at least four other Pride flags in the area were vandalized. The vandalism is reported to have happened between 1-1:30 a.m.
The Salt Lake City Police Department is asking anyone living in the area to check home surveillance or doorbell cameras to see if they captured the suspect.
Anyone with information about the situation – and who has not yet already talked with an officer – should call 801-799-3000.
