PENARTH’S PERFUMED PERENNIAL PILFERER PINCHES ANOTHER PLANT

A Morrison's £2.50 Lavender plant - apparently what local criminals are prepared to put in some spadework to steal.

A Morrison’s £2.50 Lavender plant – these-days apparently what local criminals are prepared to put in some spadework to steal.

A couple living on a residential housing estate in the South of Penarth near Cosmeston has reported a second raid in succession on their front garden by a burglar who, it seems, has a particular liking for Lavender.

Apparently armed with a trowel, the thief has dug up a newly-planted Lavender which the couple had bought from Morrisons – and planted in their front garden – leaving just a hole in the ground.

Where there was once a £2:50 Morrisons Lavender plant - now there's just a gaping hole in the ground

Shortly after the discovery of the first theft – it’s happened again – just 24 hours ago.

After another lightning bit of clandestine spade-work by the mystery intruder , a second newly-planted Lavender perennial was found to have been pinched – leaving yet another hole in the ground.

The couple don’t want to identified or to reveal their address – and they say both specimens were “only a £2.50 lavender plant from Morrisons  – but that’s not really the point”. 

Whilst there have been previous plant-thefts in Penarth, South Wales Police haven’t notified any recent cases to Penarth Council in their monthly reports – nevertheless they should have a good idea what the culprit smells like.
