Police in Ontario, Ohio, say a woman was caught on camera stealing a toy from a toddler’s grave.
Earlier this week, the Ontario police department posted on its Facebook page a video of the woman’s alleged thievery. Captured on April 19, the clip shows a woman in a white T-shirt taking a plush duck toy from what police say is the grave of a 14-month-old boy named Hayden, who died in 2007.
It was 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.
