MAYSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A
woman is facing charges after police said she stole flowers and other items
from strangers grave sites to place them on her friends grave.
Police in Maysville, Kentucky
arrested Rita Newman on Saturday after a woman who had just put flowers on her
father's grave said Newman picked them up and put them on another headstone.
Another witness, April
Woodruff, said she saw Newman take shepherd hooks and solar powered lights from a baby's headstone.
"It was horrible. They're
already grieving so much and that's just ridiculous," said Woodruff.
Police said when they caught
up with Newman she had even more flowers in her vehicle.
