[January 05, 2009]  ERWIN, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities in northeast Tennessee have arrested a man and charged him with possession of stolen property after grave decorations were found at his home, next to a cemetery.

CivicThe Johnson City Press quoted Unicoi County Sheriff Kent Harris saying the man told investigators the decorations were blown onto his property by the wind.

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

Executing a search warrant, 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.
