Authorities arrested a man in Erwin, Tennessee last Wednesday charging him with possession of stolen property after grave decorations were found at his home, next to a cemetery.


The Associated Press reported 53-year-old Randall S. Wilson told investigators the decorations were blown onto his property by the wind.


Unicoi County Sheriff Kent Harris said his office received a tip from a man who said he saw someone take flowers from Evergreen Cemetery and take them to the man's house.


After searching the home, deputies found about 50 items including ceramic angels, a pair of praying hands, small Christmas trees, lights and several flower arrangements in the home and on his property.


Wilson was given a $2,500 bond.
