Police in South Buffalo caught a group of juveniles stealing the stick-on yellow ribbons motorists have placed on their cars to support U.S. troops in Iraq.
"I don't think these youths were trying to make a social commentary. It was just kids acting mischievous and ignorant," South District Officer Anthony LeBron said Saturday.
Similar thefts have been reported in the city's Riverside area and on the West Side. Police say they have heightened their alert against such crimes.
