    Owner Joshua Newcity is offering to give the plants to anyone who provides the tip that enables police to press charges against the thieves.

    The Caledonian Record reports that on Thursday, thieves stole two 5-foot-tall plants from behind a 7-foot privacy fence. Two other plants were taken from near Newcity's front door.
