"Don't take stuff that doesn't belong to you," that's the message Cheyenne police have for kids after some were caught trying to steal a flag from a Veterans Day display.

According to a Tuesday night post on the agency's Facebook page, kids in a maroon Hummer tried to steal a flag from Meridian Trust's display on E. Lincolnway.

Police say the kids stopped after someone at the neighboring Loaf 'N Jug confronted them.

"It's (the flag display) out there for a reason with the holiday," said Officer David Inman. "Just leave stuff alone."
