“Lock up your cars, lock up your sheds, and lock up your shrubs too,” the Garden Center posted on Facebook.

Video surveillance shows a white male riding a bicycle on the property hands free. But footage of him leaving the premises appears to show a small tree under his right arm.

The FHGC said the suspect wore red pants and a black #20 jersey. It also reports the individual took a 3 ft tall tree around 8:02 p.m. designated for someone else.

Additionally, the Fairless Hills Garden Center believes the suspect came from the direction of Arleans Ave and Trenton Rd. “We think he went back that way.”

Anyone with information can contact the Garden Center at 215-428-2250. The store is located at 620 Lincoln Hwy.
