Police have arrested a woman accused of stealing flowers from flower pots in Old Colorado City.

Debra Porzio, 55, is accused of stealing about $1,500 in flowers during the summer.

Colorado City was the first permanent town in the Pikes Peak Region. It's on the west side of I-25 between Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs. Old Colorado City now features over 100 fine galleries, specialty shops, boutiques, restaurants and more.

Porzio was arrested Tuesday near the 100 block of South 24th Street. That's near the old Courthouse and Bancroft Park.
