Landscape thieves nab shrubs, gas

Several homes in Mukwonago, WI, have been targeted by thieves who are making away with trees, flowers and shrubs.

According to Newsradio 620 in Wisconsin: Elsie Roth had her newly planted tress, shrubs and flowers dug up and stolen. 25 holes were found all around Roth's condo complex.

"Just a little bit surprised," Roth said.  "This is something unusual. I don't know of any other time someone has taken landscaping out of the ground right after it's been planted."

If that’s not enough, we have a report from Vancouver, WA, where a fuel tank at a landscaping company was targeted. Thieves got away with nearly $3,000 worth of gas.
