Derby Garden Centre Trees similar to those stolen

One of our officers is appealing for witnesses after a number of trees and plants were stolen from Derby Garden Centre. 

The incident happened overnight between Sunday, August 12 and Monday, August 13 when someone climbed over the fencing at the centre on Alfreton Road, Little Eaton, Derby and removed a number of trees and plants. 

The theft is being investigated by PC Sarah Browne, who said: “Some of the trees stolen were quite large and would probably needed to have been loaded on to a van type vehicle. 

“I would ask if anyone saw anything suspicious that night, has seen similar trees appear in someone’s garden or has been offered any items for sale similar to those in the attached photos, that they make contact with me.” 

If you think you can help, please get in touch with Sarah using one of the following non-emergency contact methods: 

Please quote the reference number 18*384005 and the name of the officer in the case.
