CORINTH, Miss. (AP) - Three people who authorities say planned to open a florist shop with items stolen from a local cemeteries have been arrested by Alcorn County deputies.

Sheriff's department Investigator Reggie Anderson tells the Daily Corinthian that the three were arrested after a tip from the public. Each was charged this past week with destroying public property. The three are being held pending an initial court appearance.

Those arrested were 51-year-old Kevin Eugene Gunn, 35-year-old Angela Renee Gunn and 57-year-old Theresa Gail Robertson, all of Corinth.

Anderson says most of the items - including wreaths, bows, ceramic angels along with wrought iron crosses - were found at the florist business the three were preparing to open.

He says items were taken from cemeteries in the Corinth, Farmington and Rienzi areas.
