In what I think is one of the more retarded “crimes” recently reported in Hoboken, the Jersey Journal’s Charles Hack reported on this story today. This lady must have wanted her plants and possessions stolen! I just don’t get it.
Hoboken garden stolen!
by Charles Hack
An elaborate front garden was stolen in Hoboken early this morning, police told The Jersey Journal. Even more bizarrely, it was apparently all caught on tape but not stopped.
A Bloomfield Street woman told cops that at 5:15 this morning she videotaped a woman entering the front gate of her home, between First and Second streets, and use her apparently green-with-envy thumbs to walk off with three plants, three statues, 10 garden decorations and an Italian flag, police said.
Cops couldn’t explain why the homeowner didn’t try to stop the theft, but said she reported that she recognized the suspect as a woman called “Vera” who had passed by the house on Sunday and complimented her on her garden.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hoboken Police Department at (201) 420-2106.
