BAY RIDGE - A pair of recent flag thefts in Bay Ridge has residents fuming.

Each victim was either in the military or has a family member serving in the armed forces.

State Sen. Marty Golden (R-22nd District) has presented both victims with replacements.

?You can?t steal American flags in Brooklyn and get away with it,? he said. ?We want those flags flying high.?
