The individuals were arrested due to a tip. The individual donated the reward money to replace the flags that had to be burned according to Flag Code. Thank you to everyone who shared and assisted.
Our Mayor, Robert Noblin, is offering a $250 reward for information that leads to the arrest of these individuals. Our Chief of Police, James Harris, has joined him and is offering a $100 reward. Please contact the Belen Police Department if you have any information.**
On Friday, June 3rd between 2:30am and 2:40am a group of what appears to be teenagers stole the United States flag from the Veterans’ Memorial at Eagle Park. We are asking that it be returned to the City. The Veterans’ Memorial is a place that honors those who have served our country and many people have worked hard and dedicated their time to make it a wonderful monument to the sacrifices of the men, women, and families of our armed forces.
Please, if you have any information, call City Hall at 505-966-2730.
