WEARE — An anonymous letter was sent to the Weare Police Department apologizing for stealing orange flamingos that support a 12-year-old diagnosed with leukemia.
Calls were sent to police on Aug. 26 reporting the missing flamingos. On Aug. 27 about 15 orange flamingos for the fundraiser were found on the side of the road.
The police department received an anonymous apology letter in which they said they only took the flamingos from Colby Road.
"We are truly sorry for our actions and had no idea what the flamingos on Colby Road symbolized. We would have never taken them," read the anonymous letter.
A "small donation" was included with the letter.
Abby VanDyke, 12, was recently diagnosed with leukemia. To help cover medical expenses, orange flamingos are being sold by family friends for $10 each.
