It Should Come as No Surprise …

… that we now have a report that something’s been stolen at the site of the Virginia Flaggers’ I-95 flag pole.

No, it’s not the flag. It’s something that someone used to highlight, which may have made it more vulnerable to theft.

h/t to the source.

    That happens more than you might think. The thieves take heavy equipment, break it down and sell the parts. Worth more sold as parts than assembled and running. Plus parts don’t have serial numbers. They said it was valued at 20K ? I would think it would be worth more.

    Also, repossessions tend to happen at night as well. Also, thanks Brooks for that final link….I now have a migraine attempting to follow what train of thought she was trying to convey, if that’s what you call it. I hope you haven’t been wondering out in the desert too much though, you could dehydrate…

      Connie has such a rich imagination that she ought to take up writing fiction … outside her blog.

    I think it’s a publicity stunt. Jennings most likely had one of his cronies move it to another site.

    Learned something by this, Hitachi excavators are a lot cheaper than Case or John Deer. On the other hand excavators run from the lowest , 35K to over 100K. The 20K has me wondering?

    I think Ray’s onto something. Maybe they forgot to pay the rental bill and it was repossessed.

    I see they are still obsessed with this site. I would not be surprised it was stolen. The thieves probably said flaggers? Smells like rubes, easy pickins’.

    Well, they did advertise that they didn’t have lights or a security fence :)

    I agree with Schroeder. Insurance job and/or publicity stunt, the police and insurance companies should keep a close eye on these chuckleheads.

    The ghosts of Yankee soldiers made off with it….

      Not a lot of love for the Flaggers there. Looks like America rejects the whole Flagger concept including the Southern Heritage garbage.
