A Florida woman is facing charges after allegedly stealing flowers and other mementos from graves in a Tampa cemetery.

Fawn Charbonier Loyd was arrested at the Myrtle Hill Cemetery after visitors saw her removing items.

An officer called to the scene reported seeing a blue Toyota Camry parked in front of a mausoleum. In addition to flowers, stuffed animals and flags inside the car, there were figurines, solar power lights and a balloon that appeared to be removed from grave sites.

Loyd was charged with disturbing contents of a grave or tomb, grand theft, loitering or prowling, criminal mischief and providing a false name to law enforcement.

She is being held on $6,750 bail.
