WINTHROP, Maine — Police in Winthrop are investigating the theft of two wreaths from a veterans monument that has outraged veterans and their supporters.

Six wreaths were placed on the monument Saturday by Wreaths Across America volunteers. They had a red ribbon on top and an American Flag on bottom, adjacent to a flag representing the five service branches and the Merchant Marine service.

Navy veteran Al Godfrey discovered two of them missing on Tuesday when he went to work on the monument.

He alerted police, but so far there have been no arrests.

Godfrey told the Kennebec Journal that the thief or thieves are cowards.
