GREENVILLE, N.C. — Police are trying to root out a very bizarre thief caught on camera Sunday. They say the man was caught stealing a tree from downtown Greenville.
Cell phone video posted to the Greenville Police Department Facebook page shows the man ripping the small sapling out of a patch in the sidewalk and walking away.
Police say the leafy larceny happened at 2:22 a.m. Sunday morning. No one has come forward to claim responsibility or return the pollinated prisoner.
An investigation is ongoing.
