SPARTANBURG, S.C -
Spartanburg Police are trying to figure out who stole the United States and South Carolina flags from the Downtown Memorial Airport.

An airport employee told police the flags were taken sometime between Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 and 7:30 Thursday morning.

The rope appears to have been cut and the flags removed from the flagpole at the front of the terminal building on Ammons Drive. Spartanburg Police tell us the flag poles are located in an open, public area.

Airport director Darwin Simpson tells us officers patrolled the airport six times the night of the thefts, but saw no suspects. 

The SPS incident report states no security video is available into the thefts. Simpson says a surveillance system for the airport has been in the works for several months.

Simpson says there will soon be "significant surveillance" at Spartanburg Downtown Memorial Airport.
