CARROLL COUNTY, Ga -- There is nothing more sacred than the dead. That's why several victims of theft are appalled to find out someone was stealing from their loved one's graves.
Carroll County Sheriff investigators arrested Eleanor Ashley, 55, and charged her with six counts of Theft by Taking. Investigators said she was stealing flower arrangements from graves and re-selling them for profit.
"Putting flowers on a loved one's grave after they've passed and then actually going back and finding out that they're missing, it infuriates people," said Carroll County Chief Deputy Brad Robinson.
