DURANGO, C.O. (KRQE) –  Durango residents claim that thieves have been digging up their plants during the night.

One victim, a member of the garden club, says it has gotten so bad she’s installing security cameras.

The Durango Herald says only one person has ever been arrested for plant poaching in the city’s history. Police suspect few victims actually report the crime.

Those who are caught face a misdemeanor.
