According to an article in The Daily Dot, there are graveyard thieves who will steal flowers from gravesites.
It has been reported that during certain times of the year, such thefts are more prevalent than at other times.
People have been arrested for stealing flowers from gravesites and one TikToker wanted to make sure it would not happen to a loved one's grave.
The TikToker decided to rig a flower arrangement with an Apple Airtag. The flower arrangement was placed on a grave. As she expected, it was stolen and the next step was to track the thief using the Airtag.
She then films the encounter as uniformed officers track down the graveyard thief.
In the video, the officers are walking down a residential street. They notice that the stolen flowers have been placed as a decorative piece in front of a residential home.
The officers point to the potted plant and the police dig out an Apple Airtag from a plastic bag that was inside the plant pot.
However, the TikToker is shocked at the identity of the homeowner who stole the flowers. It is an elderly woman.
“the disrespect and nerve people have to steal from the dead smh granny stealing at her big old age
Although she does not mention if the elderly woman was charged with theft, viewers of the TikTok channel wanted to know more about the situation.
One person's comment summed it up,
“i imagine this HADDD to have happened before for yall to put an air tag in it. Did she get charged???
