A woman from York County, Pennsylvania, who allegedly sent black roses and a card reading "karma" to her former boss has been charged with harassment.
Dana L. Grim, 41, of Thomasville, was charged with the summary count earlier this week and has been summoned to appear in court to face it at a later date.
New Holland police say Grim sent the flowers to her former employer in Earl Township, Lancaster County, through a local florist. Authorities say Grim admitted to sending the bouquet and accompanying card in speaking with officers.
Police have not identified the recipient.
But the ex-employer reportedly felt so threatened by the flowers, after researching their meaning, that they contacted the authorities. Black roses, which do not exist in nature, have been used to symbolise death or revenge traditionally.
The conditions or terms of Grim's departure from the business are also unclear.
