US (FL): Thieves steal roses, flowers from Orange County nursery

Apopka Police said a burglary happened not once, but twice at Liner’s Patch on Plymouth Sorrento Road during the past week.

“A guy gets out and comes in, loads up the trinettes down there, runs down here and tosses more plants out,” Manager Justin Dunn said.

The owners estimated that anywhere from 60-70 potted plants were taken, including drift roses, fashion azaleas, purple formosa azaleas and arboricola trinettes.

They said it appears the plants were stolen by several people who pulled up in a car, then lifted up the fence to move the plants.

According to the surveillance video obtained by News 6, the first burglary occurred on Tuesday a little before midnight, with the second incident occurring at around 7:45 p.m. Wednesday.

The owners at Liner Patch said they lost more than just some flowers and plants these past two days.
