Police investigators are attempting to track down the suspects who went on a criminal mischief spree that included the burning of American flags.

On Monday, July 8, police investigators in Ridgefield received reports of smashed car windows, damaged mailboxes and burned American flags throughout the town.

Damaged cars, mailboxes, and flags were found on Barrack Hill Road, Golf Lane, Armand Place, Walnut Hill Road, and Pin Pack Road.
