Flag Burnings

Winona authorities are looking for the person who burned two American flags.

Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams said officers were called to a residence in the 800 block of west Broadway where they discovered an American flag on a pole had been burned.

When they got there they also discovered a American flag at a next door neighbor had also been burned.   

There was also a report of a burned flag in Goodview.

It's a federal offense to desecrate an American flag and the penalty is a fine and-or one year in prison, or both.
