As robberies and petty thefts become more frequent among locations in Georgetown, the Garden Land Nursery has now become the latest place where bandits seem to enjoy robbing.
Last week, the Garden Land Nursery, located on Brickdam, Stabroek, was broken into. The thieves stole a number of expensive pots which held a number of beautiful plants. The latter were either destroyed in the process or lay on the floor not far from where the pots were located.
When Kaieteur News visited the site, it was evident that a number of plants were badly damaged. The caretaker of the Garden Land Nursery pointed out the various spots where plants were stolen from.
She explained that for a number of weeks, drug addicts who live in the Leopold and Cross street area would frequent her shop and steal any item that they could put their hands upon, even robbing the guard who was on duty one evening while he fell asleep on the job.
This publication understands that five extremely large pots valued at $4,500 each were stolen during the latest robbery. These pots contained plants valued at various prices and the woman stated that she suffered a loss of $50,000 on this occasion.
She is pleading for the police or higher authorities to look into the matter since reports were made to police stations previously yet nothing was done about it.
