A giant American flag that was stolen from the side of the Newport Blues Café has been returned, with interest.

The flag was hung up on the building on Wednesday and taken sometime overnight.

According to the owners that flag was returned on Sunday night when a man with an English accent called and identified himself as James. James told them that there was a blue container out back by the dumpster.

Inside the container was the flag along with a not and $100. The note explained that the individual “was not in the right state of mind” when the flag was taken and apologized for taking the flag. The $100 was left to cover the cost of “renting the flag.”
