Police are reportedly looking for five people as they investigate the removal of American flags from the Brooklyn Bridge earlier this week.

The flags were swapped out for bleached American flags around 3 a.m. Tuesday.

According to the Daily News, police say the five people they are looking for were seen crossing the bridge about 20 minutes before the flags came down.

The paper says all five are in their late teens or early 20s, and one was carrying a skateboard.

The bleached flags were removed Tuesday afternoon and replaced with American flags.

A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to those responsible for the stunt.
