WPCNR NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH. From Jean Bello, White Plains Beautification Foundation. July 3, 2013:
White Plains Beautification Foundation Adopt-A-Park Co-Chair, Jean Bello has offered more details on the community gardens thefts first reported in an earlier article today.
Ms. Bello in a statement to WPCNR notes:
The thefts involve at least 4 gardens.
Each year we experience some theft from our gardens, but this year the
perpetrators seem to be especially brazen – 40 plants from just one garden; 2
rose bushes (which are not easy to pull out and carry away) and 12 begonias from
I don’t yet have a dollar amount of what it will cost to replace the
stolen plants, but I can get a rough estimate for you if needed. A police
report has been filed.
