Silly Boy Steals Wal-mart $5 Tomato Plant, Thought It Was Pot Plant

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A 15-year-old boy climbed into Angela Cartwright`s kitchen window thinking to make off with a marijuana plant, but instead the young thief was actually stealing a potted tomato plant, a sheriff`s arrest report shows.

As he was running from Cartwright`s house on Carmen Avenue near Holly Hill on Feb. 10 just after 7 a.m., the teen even yelled at Cartwright, `See, I have one of your pot plants!` the arrest report states.


The 15-year-old kid must have been high when he stole the plant, only a moron or somebody who is high would mistake a tomato plant for a pot plant.

The impudent fool taunted Cartwright, giving her a real good look at his face. A couple of days later she spotted the young thief, he was wearing the same cloths he wore on the day of the robbery.

The silly kid must be a stoner, only the homeless and pot heads wear the same clothes every day of the week.

Cartwright called the cops, and the teen was nabbed the cops. The mischievous youngster was charged with unarmed burglary of an occupied dwelling. This is his first offense; hopefully he will realize that he`s not cut out for a life of crime.

If you steal a "pot plant" and it turns out to be a $5 tomato plant, from Wal-Mart for God`s sake, you`ll never make it as a burglar.
