Police are looking for whoever took two pride flags from the message board in the front of Stratham Community Church.
The first flag was stolen on March 31 from the church on Emory Lane, and reported by a parishioner April 3, according to Stratham Police. The parishioner said a teen in a hooded sweatshirt was holding the flag and running towards a blue Honda Pilot driven by a second teen.
The church placed a second flag on the message board on April 17, according to the church Facebook page. Two days later, it too was stolen.
Police did not disclose if both thefts are related.
"As disappointing as this as been for us, we’re deeply moved by the support from members and friends. We remain committed to Christ’s commandment to love with all of our hearts, souls, and minds," the church wrote on its Facebook page.
Police asked anyone with information about the thefts to call them at 603-778-9691.
