SELFS inwoners se plante is nou in booswigte se visier.

Plante, klein en groot, verdwyn oornag uit inwoners se goedversorgde tuine regoor Jeffreysbaai, maar dit is veral tuine in Wavecrest wat onlangs sleg deurgeloop het.

’n Omgekrapte Naas Ferreira van Leadwoodstraat sê drie van sy clivias en twee orgidee-plante het spoorloos met potte en al verdwyn. Nie eers ’n geslote hek kon die diewe afskrik nie.

“Die booswigte moet redelik sterk wees om die swaar plante oor die muur te kon tel,” sê hy.

Volgens Ferreira is dié gratis inkopietog op sy buurman se kringtelevisie vasgelê en hulle hoop om die skelms binnekort te identifiseer.

“Ek propeer my tuin mooi maak, en dan kom steel die mense die plante. Dit is ’n misdaad soos enige ander vorm van diefstal, en die skuldiges moet aan die pen ry.”

Dit is egter nie ’n geïsoleerde voorval nie.

’n Inwoner van Dr. A.D. Keetweg, het twee weke gelede besef van sy roosbome is weg.

Na hy sy lot op sosiale media bekla het, het verskeie ander inwoners van regoor die dorp laat weet dat daar van hulle plante gesteel is.

Volgens polisiewoordvoerder, kaptein Gerda Swart, is geen kriminele klag tot dusver ge-open nie, en geen klagte is tot op hede aan die Jeffreysbaai-polisiekantoor gerapporteer nie.
