A Meriden man is accused of stealing an American flag from New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart’s home.
Police arrested 54-year-old Stephen Neary Friday. Investigators said Neary was seen on video trespassing and stealing the flag from the front of the mayor’s house last week.
Neary was charged with third-degree criminal trespass and sixth-degree larceny.
Stewart had posted the video from her surveillance camera on her personal Facebook page. She said a replacement flag was anonymously left outside her house before she got home.
