From the files of people can be awful vol. 77 – porch thieves. I wish there were a way to track down this plant but that does not seem likely. Saw this sad report on the Petworth listserv yesterday:
“I had a planter stolen off my front porch Sunday morning at 4:11am @ 5th & Randolph. It was a plant that had been in the family for generations that traveled from Mississippi to Texas to Ohio and finally to DC.
I wanted to share the video in case anyone sees the person and warn everyone to safeguard items on the porch.”
