Ontario, Ohio police posted a surveillance camera at Mansfield Memorial Cemetery after the parents of a deceased 14-month-old boy reported that people were repeatedly stealing toys they would leave at his gravesite.
Within a few hours after the parents of little Hayden left a stuffed duck toy at his gravesite a woman is video taped by the camera allegedly stealing the toy.
CBS affiliate WTVR-TV reported Thursday that a local resident has admitted to taking the stuffed animal from the toddler’s gravesite. She is quoted as having told officers that she removed the toy so that a stray dog on the property wouldn’t destroy it.
She has been charged with petty theft and will appear in court on May 15, Fox affiliate WTTE reports.
