The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors renewed a $20,000 reward Tuesday for information leading to the apprehension or conviction of whoever vandalized a World War II memorial in Lancaster and stole an American flag.

Supervisor Michael Antonovich recommended the award, which was set to expire Jan. 31. It will now be available for at least another 90 days.

On Easter weekend, someone stole an American flag from the Veterans Court of Honor at the Lancaster Cemetery District and another flag flown in remembrance of troops missing in action or taken prisoner. The memorial was stripped of its lighting and fixtures as well.

Anyone with more information about the culprit was asked to call Sheriff’s Department investigator Jeremy Edwards at (661) 940-3883.
