The pride flag outside Burien’s City Hall is missing as city leaders believe it was stolen Sunday morning. This incident follows last week’s theft of Pride flags in downtown Burien and Carnation in East King County.
White supremacist flyers showed up in that city at the same time.
Pride flags have also been reportedly torn down this month in Tacoma, Everett, and Auburn. Police are currently looking for tips to help find the vandals.
