Conn. man stole flag, put up hippo toy

Call it the case of the flying hippo. Connecticut police said a man stole an American flag from Waterbury’s Town Plot Park and hoisted a stuffed hippopotamus toy in its place. Twenty-three-year-old Jeffrey Kovic, of Waterbury, was arrested and was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail on misdemeanor larceny, criminal mischief and conspiracy charges.

Kovic was arrested Tuesday. A message left for his public defender Friday wasn’t immediately returned.

City police told the Republican-American of Waterbury that they’re also seeking arrest warrants for several minors suspected of taking part in last week’s prank and for damaging park bleachers.
