ALUM CREEK, W.Va. (AP) - A South Charleston woman has been accused of stealing headstones from a family’s graveyard and using them to decorate her driveway and line her burn pit.

Multiple media outlets report 54-year-old Penny Snodgrass was arrested after Bobby Angel of South Charleston accused Snodgrass of taking his family’s headstones from Brounland Cemetery in Alum Creek.

Troopers from the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office drove up Snodgrass’ driveway and say they saw the headstones being used to surround an active fire pit.

Deputies say Snodgrass admitted to them that she took the headstones and burned large amounts of trash on her property.

Snodgrass was charged Thursday with grand larceny, removal of grave markers and various litter charges.

Snodgrass is being held on a $75,000 bond. Jail records do not indicate if she has an attorney.
