A thief with an apparent green thumb was caught on camera stealing greenery from a northeast Albuquerque man’s front garden.
Tuesday morning, Steven Saavedra noticed some of the plants in the front yard were missing.
"I noticed this glaring blank spot in one of my stands,” he said. “So I started looking around thinking maybe my fiancé had taken the flower inside. I asked her, she said no, came back outside, started looking around, and noticed a couple other things gone.”
Saavedra checked his security camera system, which showed a woman helping herself to some of his potted plants.
After carefully selecting the ones she wants, she loaded them into her car and drove away.
