JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - The three men who climbed the Alaska Capitol and stole the American and Alaska flags have turned themselves in to police.

The Juneau Empire reports (https://bit.ly/1eSomXI ) that the men turned themselves in Tuesday morning. They were caught on security cameras cutting through the chain-link fence that leads to the building July 31.

Juneau police spokesman Lt. David Campbell says the men were not arrested on the spot, but criminal charges are expected against all three. Police will ask city prosecutors to charge them with misdemeanor larceny and criminal trespass.

Campbell said alcohol was involved in the caper.
