Plant Theft Spree In Fairmont 22 Jun 13

Hundreds of dollars worth of plants and flowers have been reported stolen in the City of Fairmont in recent days. At least 10 plants have been stolen from 2 different Fairmont city parks within the past week. Some greenhouses have reported a few hundred dollars worth of potted plants missing as well, with the thieves apparently selecting specific plants out of different planters in each occasion. Many plants that weren’t stolen were reportedly stomped on as well, damaging the beds. The crimes are apparently happening at night, and the Fairmont Police Department is investigating.
