Someone has been stealing items from off the front lot of Garden Heights Nursery after hours — as least a handful of times, tree and shrub manager Steve Roesch told KPLR, which reported on Tuesday that another theft had taken place.
Decorative pottery, topiary, evergreens and soils have disappeared from the lot on Big Bend in Richmond Heights in the past few weeks.
Large pieces of terra cotta pottery have been stolen, costing up to $199. “It’s a pretty hefty price tag on that. And then a pretty big loss for us,” Roesch told KPLR. He estimates the total loss at least $2,000.
Richmond Heights police are investigating.
