STROUDSBURG --- Tuesday, a judge sentenced a man who stole a flag pole earlier this year.

Joseph Villacorta received two years probation.

He was arrested back in April for taking the aluminum pole from the Blue Ridge Hook and Ladder fire company in Snydersville.

The flag pole was part of a boy scout project.

Investigators say Villacorta was caught trying to sell it for scrap metal in Monroe County.
