A New Jersey homeowner had his Donald Trump flag stolen from his home, again.

Police in West Long Branch are looking for a woman who reportedly walked up to Joe Hornick’s front porch and ripped down the sign, which featured Trump’s name and the phrase “Make America great again,” Fox 5 NY reported.

A surveillance camera caught the woman in the act and police confirmed that a similar flag had been stolen before.

In fact, Hornick said this is the 11th time the flag has been stolen.

Hornick wrote on his Facebook page. “Just goes to show you these flags are in demand. And we have a very nice picture of this theft. In which I call, A nice action shot.”

“The Trump Flag Has Really Become The Hottest Campaign Sign In U.S. History!” Hornick said in a Facebook post. He has since replaced the stolen flag, posting a photo on Facebook with the comment “Go Trump!”

Hornick was cited back in March for displaying a political sign outside of the 30 day window before an election, Fox 5 reported. But a judge deemed the ordinance too vague and threw out the charge.

New Jersey police asked that anyone who could identify the woman call the West Long Branch Police Department.
