Drone helps Sullivan deputies catch flag thief (VIDEO)

ROCK HILL: Using a heat-seeking drone, deputies from the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office apprehended a guy who had stolen an American flag from the Trading Post Hardware Store in Rock Hill.

Landon Dulaff is accused by the police of stealing an American flag from the outside of the Trading Post Hardware Store in Rock Hill last Wednesday at around ten in the morning. After that, he strolled over to the Mobile gas station on Katrina Falls Road and pilfered two alcoholic drinks.

Dualff was observed sprinting into the woods behind a local sanitation company shortly after stealing the alcohol. Deputies used a drone equipped with thermal technology to find Dualff, and it soon became clear where he was in the woods.

Police found the culprit and apprehended him without any problems. According to the authorities, Dulaff was drunk when he was taken into custody.

Dulaff had the stolen American flag cinched around his neck when he was apprehended. Dulaff was charged in Town of Thompson Court and discharged with an appearance ticket, awaiting a later court date.
