(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest a young woman who was caught on camera ripping flowers of an elderly woman’s grave, police in Canada said.

London police said that a hidden camera caught the 20-year-old woman repeatedly stealing flowers from the grave of 86-year-old Alma Allerston, who was buried at the St. Peter’s Cemetery.

Her daughter, Marg Allerston-Medeiros and her family decorated the place with fresh flowers. During the last three months, someone has been stealing the flowers and they ended up in a nearby trash container.

It happened 10 or 12 times, the daughter said.

Allerston-Medeiros had enough and set up a video camera, which captured images of the female suspect ripping the flowers.

London police are looking for the slim woman, around 20 years old, about five feet and five inches tall with dyed blond hair and dark roots.

Allerston-Medeiros said that she has no idea why someone wants to vandalize her mother’s grave.
