A 31-year-old Sparta woman was arrested on suspicion of stealing more than two dozen lawn ornaments.
An officer was flagged down early Saturday shortly before 3:30 a.m. by a resident who saw a woman take a lawn ornament from her backyard. Police saw Amy McCurdy running nearby and found her Dodge Citation parked nearby next to a pile of other ornaments.
Inside the car they found even more, apparently taken from lawns throughout the area. Police continue working to identify the owners of the ornaments.
