US (OH): Greenhouse catches plant thieves on security cameras

A local greenhouse is dealing with plant thieves, but according to a manager at Whiteford Greenhouse in Sylvania, these people are not after just any greenery.

“Oh yeah, they definitely knew what they were looking for.” said the manager, who did not want to be identified.

The several security cameras surrounding the local business caught two people stealing house plants.

The Whiteford Greenhouse manager says people might want to steal these because not only are some of them hard to come by, but they can also be worth a lot of money. “Each leaf and node is $100 to $125, so if you take this plant home and grow it, you can go on Facebook Marketplace and sell cuttings from your plant.”

An employee at Hoen’s Greenhouse in Holland says these same people were looking around there too.
