A 67-year-old woman has been arrested after a hidden camera appeared to show her stealing flowers, wreaths and other items from grave sites in a Council Bluffs cemetery.

The Council Bluffs woman was arrested Monday on suspicion of theft and trespassing at Ridgewood Cemetery.

The arrest came after another Council Bluffs resident, Doug Lantry, became fed up with the theft of flowers and other items from his late wife's grave.

Lantry mounted a motion-sensing camera to a tree near his wife's grave, and says he now has pictures of the woman taking items from the site.

On Monday, a cemetery worker spotted the woman in the cemetery and called police.
