Shalimar plant nursery continues to have plants stolen

The Wildwood Garden Shoppe and Nursery in Shalimar was once again a target of burglary over the weekend and is now reaching out to the community for help identifying the perpetrators. 

This past Saturday, an individual was caught on camera breaking into the boutique after hours, where they made off with over $1,000 worth of merchandise.

Believed to be the same perpetrators as last time, the individual in question demonstrated familiarity with plants, the boutique’s owners, and the boutique itself. Although only one individual can be seen on camera, it is suspected that they had help from at least one more person.

Distinguishing features of the perpetrator include:

  • Skinny frame
  • Red or strawberry-colored hair
  • A distinct, turned-out walk

The plants and merchandise stolen were:

  • Bird of Paradise 15G
  • Banana plants
  • Limelight Hydrangea
  • Loofah plants
  • Sunshine Ligustrum
  • Aloe plants
  • Pink Carnation Azaleas
  • Rubber plants 
  • Caladiums
  • Passion Vines
  • Three large pots

The boutique is offering a cash reward to anybody who can help identify the perpetrators. If you have any information to offer, contact the boutique at (850) 797-3678.
