Virginia police announced last week they had arrested 22-year-old Kayla Caniff for burning an American flag and destroying property in the process.

According to WRC-TV, an Arlington police officer arrested Caniff after spotting her burn a flag attached to a chain link fence late Thursday night. She was subsequently charged with property destruction.

In response, Fairfax County firefighters unfurled a giant American flag at their training center and placed 16 American flags on overpasses along Interstate 66 to honor 9/11 victims.

Unfortunately, Caniff was not the only person arrested for desecrating the American flag and destroying property in the area last week.

Police also nabbed 39-year-old Maria Arif for destroying American flags and other property in several northern Virginia neighborhoods. She was charged with larceny, destruction of property, and "two counts of mutilating a U.S. flag," WTTG-TV reported.
