Franklin County Sheriff's Office

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Flags donated to help remember a fallen Franklin County Sheriff’s Office deputy have been stolen, according to the sheriff’s office.

The flags were placed on the memorial highway signs to remember Marty Martin, who was killed in a crash in 2008.

The sheriff’s office said in May the flags, which featured an American flag design with a thin blue line, were donated by M.A. D. Graphics.

In a tweet, the sheriff’s office said, “Our Chaplain, Father Connolly, is praying for you”.

The sheriff's office said M.A.D. Graphics will donate replacement flags.
