The mystery of the disappearing plants (and, witnesses sought) — 10 Comments

    • Hi Terrie, I was on site. Select plants from throughout the garden were uprooted/dug out; then, the holes were filled and made to look as though nothing was there to begin with. Way beyond the skill set of a wild animal. -Britt/SPN

  1. I was driving west at that time. I don’t remember the exact time, but maybe around 5:30 pm? I saw a male, slim build, dark hair, baseball cap (blue? and white), jeans, holding a trowel in his right hand. I thought to myself, how nice he had cleaned up the area, and wondered what landscaping company he was with. He was backing out of the area in photo #1 and was stepping down onto the sidewalk and starting to turn east.

    Sorry I wouldn’t be able to identify the guy.

  2. Same thing happened at WorkLink. First the plants, next day, the planter!

  3. I can’t believe what I’m reading! This is so disrespectful, rude and down-right criminal. I hope someone has some info on who did this. Their punishment should fit the crime…community service, tending and cleaning the town core and in-particular where they stole from. Not to mention a personal apology to the people who were stolen from.

  4. It’s a shame that business owners like at LVB invest so much time money and energy into creating a beautiful spot in downtown Sooke for all to enjoy, and then some moron steals their valuable plants. I hope their outdoor cameras catch the thief and they prosecute!
