Police Say Duo May Have Stolen Mum Plant from Greenlawn Grave

Since there was not a named witness, charges will not be filed.

Police say a couple may have stolen a mum plant from a Greenlawn Cemetery grave on Friday morning.

Police responded to the cemetery at 10:35 a.m. and spoke to a woman who said she saw a red Lincoln Town Car operated by an elderly woman stop by a grave site. When the car stopped, police said the witness told them a man exited and removed a mum plant from the grave. Police said the man asked "Do you want another one?" before the driver said "no" and the people drove away, according to the witness.

Police were able to track the driver of the car down in Beverly and spoke with her.

When informed of the incident, police said the woman said she was not in the cemetery and said nobody was using her car. Police said the woman's voice sounded "nervous" and "she rushed [the officer] off the phone."

Police said there are no other suspects and charges won't be filed because there was no named witness — the cemetery just wanted the incident documented.

Pretty low of people even stealing from the dead..... return the flowers and say a prayer you need it.
