The NYPD is investigating a mysterious incident that happened at the Brooklyn Bridge.

The American flags that usually fly atop the span have been replaced by white flags.

Authorities believe they may be painted over American flags, as the stars and stripes are faintly visible underneath.

There is surveillance video, but so far no arrests have been made.

Crews took the flags down this morning.
