Stolen flags re­turned

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

FLAGS stolen from the Yungaburra Av­enue of Hon­our have been re­turned anony­mously.

Thieves took the Aus­tralian and Queens­land flags from the me­mo­rial site on Jan­uary 12 with Av­enue com­mit­tee mem­bers fu­ri­ous over the in­ci­dent. How­ever, they is­sued an open let­ter of­fer­ing to take no fur­ther ac­tion if they were re­turned.

The flags were found in a plas­tic bag on the steps in front of the Yungaburra Post Of­fice.

Av­enue vice pres­i­dent Rod Marti said they would not take fur­ther ac­tion. “It’s ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic (they’re back),” he said. “I don’t want to thank them be­cause they shouldn’t have done it in the first place. But it’s a re­lief that we’ve got them back.”
