I also had plants stolen and just now saw an older woman investigating my garden like she was casing a joint then looked up and down the street and at my building. When she saw me she looked started and left. Does she have long grey hair by any chance?

I've noticed the 'alleged' offender watering all your plants this morning.

At least she has the decency to keep all your plants healthy.

Hardly a public flogging. And telling someone to check out the place of a habitual offender is not libel. Giving the address may have been a bit much and could of been PM's or say PM me if anyone needs the location.

This is what a community board is for. Someone complained about an incident and advice was given, and the HP association chimed in on what to do as well. And just because she has issues, while shedding some light on the situation, doesn't make it ok.

I was considering putting some plants in the front of my place and was already a little hesitant because of potential vandalism, and probably won't now.

I call BS on that. So they poison the soil and plants still grow? Total BS.


plus, dogs love the taste of antifreeze, so you're just luring animals to your property and making them sick.

what's the opposite of win-win?

This woman sounds mentally ill as well, your typical kleptomaniac perhaps. Maybe this public flogging will cause her to get the help she needs.

I wish Lincoln Park had the luxury of worrying about stolen flowers, but I chose to own rather than rent. (What was I thinking?) Ironically, all of our flowers are intact.

Nevertheless, I applaud your efforts to catch the thief. Small things like landscaping make a big difference in crime and the overall social health of a neighborhood. It speaks of your civic-mindedness.

Any further news on the public flogging of this woman?

I noticed last Thursday several police cars slowly canvasing the Hamilton Park area. I wonder if they were out looking for this scofflaw.

Our flowers by the curb were pulled out and stolen a few days after my husband planted them. I believe it was last summer. I wonder it was her. It was near 9th and Coles.

Perhaps you value your flowers/stolen materials at over $500 and demand that it be classified as Felony Theft.

I think that under $200 and the worst that will happen is a disorderly person's charge.

Given the amount of time, energy, and associated costs that go into a flower, $500 is easily plausible.

Her back yard is packed with all the stolen plants and other things from the neighborhood, so there is physical evidence. I have had stuff stolen from her myself and gone to the police, but I guess its not important enough for them. Her family just acts like they don't know what's going on.

I live in this neighborhood too and have plants in front of my door and so far haven't run into this woman. I had no idea this was going on. I just received the email about it.

What happened as a result of signing a complaint? Did the police say the could do anything about it despite that there isn't any physical evidence (i.e. a photograph of the woman with the stolen items)?

Hi Neighbors,

I apologize, in my haste to write a post on here regarding the lady and her daughter who are stealing plants, I made a typo in my email address.
Here is the correct email: jnord5852@aol.com

Thanks,
Jan

Hi Neighbors,

We have a very brave dog walking neighbor, who witnessed the plant stealing lady stealing flowers around 11:30 pm and followed the lady and her daughter home weeks ago.

We are now aware that this lady walks around in the day time in the neighborhood stealing and filling her black plastic bags, and then goes out again with her daughter late night between 11:30pm-12:00am.

This lady has apparently been stealing flowers, bushes, statues, front stoop doormats, home signs, solar lights, and anything else she and her daughter fancy for about 3-4 yrs., and many of these items have been seen in her back yard.

Update:
On Monday, July 11, 2011, our brave dog walker saw the lady walking with her empty big black plastic bag in the afternoon and followed her to a neighbor's house on West Hamilton. He saw her putting the neighbor's 2 big potted plants in her bag and he confronted her. She denied trying to steal them, he took the bag from her and put the plants back inside the fenced in area, and he notified the East District and the home owner. The neighbor is signing a complaint as a victim.

Another neighbor who lives on Pavonia is signing a complaint because he has witnessed her stealing from his front yard and confronted her on several occasions over the years, but he never knew who she was or where she lived.

Here's What You Can Do To Help Us:

I have been working closely with the East District for about 7 yrs., along with Pam Andes, and we are both members of the Downtown JC Watch Group. Together we have worked on many issues in this neighborhood.

I am currently looking to talk to neighbors who have seen the plant lady stealing your plants or items from your property, or know a neighbor who has seen her stealing their plants, and asking to please contact me either by email or my cell . Thanks!

Best,
Jan

Update: she's been spotted within the past couple of days inside people's yards, taking plants and possibly other pieces of property, too.
Anyone who has actually seen her taking their stuff can email Hamilton Park Neighborhood Association VP Jan Nordland: JNord5852@aol.com

I have to agree with you on this. You say you have no proof, but only suspect it is her. AND state where the person lives. This is insane. If everyone got revenge on who the SUSPECTED had wronged them, there would be mass violence daily for no real cause. I'm sure you wouldn't like it if all of a sudden people started showing up at your house and potentially doing harm to you for something you didn't do, nor knew nothing about. Until you have proof, making these accusations and giving out addresses only makes you look like the fool. I really hope the webmaster edits this thread and takes this stuff down.

c'mon, we're not talking about some assh*le deliberately trying to trash the neighborhood. this is a lady with dementia (or something) who compulsively plucks flowers from flowerpots. it's annoying, sure, but not worthy of a torch-wielding crowd.

pitchforks, sure. but no torches.

She didn't seem too... competent.

If a letter to her works, next we can try an intervention by letter to that woman who is always completely bruised.

Gee, wish I said that...wait, I did. Hard to believe that everyone who has been a victim of this nut is rolling over and playing dead. Call her out! You can only change things if you attack the source. Don't let this lunatic have control over you. Pound on her door and tell her to stop! Screw the nice letter. She STOLE from you.
