BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The University of Vermont will hold a campus meeting after questions have been raised about why the school didn’t announce it had caught the person who stole a Black Lives Matter flag flying on campus last fall.

UVM says it cannot reveal the identity of the person, who is not enrolled at this time. The school will hold a campus meeting on Monday.

UVM says campus police, in consultation with the attorney general’s office, referred the case to the school’s Center for Student Conduct.

The student newspaper first reported the thief had been identified.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/2qGN43H ) the flag was flown to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement after police shot and killed black men in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Charlotte, North Carolina.
