NASHVILLE, Ga. -- Authorities in south Georgia are investigating the theft of a Confederate flag and flagpole that were stolen from a courthouse memorial. 

The Confederate flag memorial at the Berrien County Courthouse in Nashville had been in place for 10 years before the flagpole was sawed off its foundation and stolen.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans Berrien Light Infantry raised money to build the $18,000 monument. The Berrien County Sheriff's office is investigating the incident.

Nashville is about 30 miles north of Valdosta.
