CARROLL, Iowa (AP) — Iowa authorities have arrested a third man accused of stealing flagpoles from the Carroll American Legion over the Memorial Day weekend.

The Carroll Daily Times Herald reports ( ) that 18-year-old Jerad Wayne Reed of Lohrville was arrested on Tuesday.

Authorities have also charged 37-year-old Christopher Lee Gay and 20-year-old Chance Abel Kenny, both of Lake City.

Police say the men stole two trailers with an estimated 550 metal flagpoles and attempted to sell them at two local salvage yards. Legion members say the salvage-yard workers declined to buy them. The total value of the poles was estimated at $16,500.

All three men face felony theft charges. They face up to 15 years in prison if convicted.

A phone message was left with Reed's attorney.
