VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (WAVY) — A Virginia Beach man was found guilty today, of stealing his neighbor’s American flag.

John Parmele was facing three criminal charges after his neighbor, Michael Anderson, filed documents in a Virginia Beach court. Both men live on Yawl Point in the Laurel Cove neighborhood off of North Great Neck Road.

Parmele admitted to taking one of the flags, and said he took it to the Veterans of Foreign Wars to give it a proper retirement.

According to the Associated Press, Parmele is a retired Navy veteran.
