A man caught on camera stealing an Irish tricolour from outside a bar in Willoughby, Ohio, has been warned to give it back before the cops are called. 

The man, wearing a dark jacket, can be seen in surveillance footage taking the flag and wrapping it up along the staff before fleeing with it down the street

The timestamp on the footage shows that the theft happened at 10.21pm on March 7.

The Wild Goose posted a message on Facebook: “Dear Guy who stole our Irish Flag during St. Pats Season please bring it back before we ask the Willoughby Police Department to find you … Please and Thanks.”

However, it may be already too late as the Willoughby Police Department shared the footage from The Wild Goose’s surveillance cameras on their Facebook page.

They added: “Call the Willoughby Police Detective Bureau at 440-953-4210 and reference report #22-07368 if you recognize this suspect or have any other information on this theft."
