11 Plundered & Purloined & Pillaged Pots O'Flowers 4th of July Garage Sales ISt. Jolm'sl By Mike Lakin g Chief Lynn Freer called Ofc. William Gilmer; Johnson True ft. Value reported an apparent theft of flowers. " The vehicle, possibly used in the theft, belonged to a Chest- nut resident. Ofc. Gilmer arrived in Chestnut at the residence and saw numerous flowers and plants throughout the yard. He also saw over a.dozen plants that had not yet t been planted, but looked as though k they were recently taken from a store. , He asked the resident if. by -, chance the flowers had been taken to from Johnson True Value In Mount o Pulaski. The resident then pointed to to a radio flyer wagon and said that some of the plants and flowers in it came "from there". When asked if the resident had paid for the plants, the reply was, "no, not yet, they were close, but I intend to pay for them tomorrow." Ofc. Gilmer explained that one should not take merchandise from a business when they are closed, and certainly taking them with- out paying for the merchandise is wrong. The resident replied that she knew the owner of the' store personally and called him prior in the day. She said that she'd been at the store around 9 AM to purchase flowers and then went back around 5 PM to get more without purchas- ing them. When asked as to when she had made her call to the owner of the business, she said she did not Pennsylvania woman who works at McDonald's is suing her employers for paying her with a fee-laden debit card.

Gilmer explained that because the merchandise was taken "outside store hours", and without being paid for, he was going to return the merchandise to the busi- ness. He added that the resident was going to be charged with theft under $500, a class a misdemeanor. ARer taking a picture of the plants, Ofc.Gilmer loaded them in his squad car and returned them to Johnson True Value. There was an extensive inventory of merchan- dise that had been taken includ- ing 16 different plants and flowers totaling over $60. When a store employee was told that the Chestnut resident said she'd been there at 9 AM that morning to buy plants, the employee said, "That was Sunday and we don't open till 10 AM, I was working, and (the subject) was not in the store at any time." Ofc. Gilmer thought it was that he had not seen other flowers recently purchased when he was at the Chestnut resident's home. Now banned from the store, the Chest- nut residence will be charged for the theft of the merchandise. The list of purloined plants was quite extensive and could have been featured on one of those garden makeover shows. Included in the heist were two Lantana, a Gerbera Daisy, four Dahlias, three Perennials, four Yellow Tomato Plants, and two spike plants.
