GPS Helps Nab Graveside Flower Robber

imageBoston – Police were able to track down a man who was stealing flowers from a gravesite thanks to GPS technology.

Rick and Donna Muzzy’s son Kevin was killed in a motorcycle accident in 2007. Each year since then, Donna has brought potted flowers to Kevin’s Holliston grave. Each year, those flowers have been stolen.

This year, police put GPS inside of the flower pot. The flowers were taken again, but this time, police knew where they were going.

They tracked the flowers and the pot to Richard Guyette’s Medway home. Guyette admitted to stealing the flowers this time, but denied any involvement in past thefts.
