WILLMAR - Willmar Police believe they have a suspect in two flag-burning incidents earlier this month at a pair of downtown businesses.

Video surveillance captured one of the incidents shortly after 1 a.m. June 1.

“We have a strong suspect,” Willmar Police Chief Dave Wyffels told the Willmar City Council in an update Monday night.

Wyffels said the video was sent to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension for enhancement. Police are holding off on interviewing any suspects until the BCA’s analysis is complete, he said Monday.

Police have said the flag-burnings don’t appear to be bias crimes or related to any larger subversive effort.
