A Vienna Township, Michigan woman allegedly stole more than 100 items from two cemeteries and then used the stolen pieces to decorate her own home.

Lisa Corcoran, 44, is believed to have stolen from more than 24 graves on six different occasions, according to MLive.

"To steal from the dead is an unimaginable act that defies description," Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell said on Thursday. "This is a new low."

At least four police reports were filed regarding missing ceramic and metal objects since April. On Monday, a witness allegedly saw Corcoran driving away from a condo development with flowers from porches and back lawns, according to the report. The witness called police with the license plate number.

Deputies pulled Corcoran over and found flowers and other items in the back of her car. Investigators seized 188 pieces of property and found that Corcoran had decorated her house with flowers and other items she allegedly stole. A bench found at her home was reportedly worth $500.

According to the Associated Press, Corcoran was arraigned Wednesday on a larceny charge. She was jailed Thursday on bond and a June conference was scheduled.
