who steals flower pots, hanging plants off of a porch?

It would seem that people who cared about how their house looked like and wanted something beautiful wouldn’t be the same people who would steal someone elses flowers. If that is the case then maybe there’s an underground economy of stolen flowers that these people are reselling their stolen items to. Have to check local pawn shops for our missing front porch plants.

I can almost understand stealing the bike(ish) tires off the bike cart. They look like (small) bike tires. But plants in a metal planter? The time invested in planting them is worth more than the item. I guess they are saving that time in steal already planted items. Still seems suprising.
