Someone stole a bush in Blue Springs.

And not just any bush – a decorative bush worth some money.

The theft occurred Wednesday afternoon at the Weatherstone Developments, according to Troy Pharr, a spokesperson for police. The bush was planted in front of the development’s main entrance gate sign.

At some point Wednesday between 3-5:30 p.m., someone dug up the bush, valued at more than $100, and removed it from in front of the sign.

“What would cause a person to steal a bush in broad daylight?” Pharr questioned, adding:

“Times must really be tough for someone to steal a bush."
