Atascadero police are looking for a man they say stole an urn from the Faces of Freedom Veterans Memorial in Atascadero.

According to an Atascadero Police Department news release, a Faces of Freedom representative found that someone had stolen a flower urn from the memorial on July 7.

The urn and flowers had been placed on the ground below the Global War on Terror plaque.
