(KSL News) -- Saint George is rallying around a World War II veteran.

He replaced one and someone cut it down. So he went to police; he even offered a reward. Now others want to match it.

Lee Warren, flagman: "One guy sent in an email, and he said 'I'll donate $500 and an (expletive) kicking if they catch the guy'."

That reward is now up to almost three-thousand dollars, but police say they have no leads yet.
