Woman caught on cam returns potted plant to Hillsboro home

HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

A Hillsboro man's home surveillance system caught a plant thief in the act, and after he shared the video on social media, the woman subsequently returned the potted plant in quick order.

The surveillance video showed the woman walk up to the porch of a Hillsboro home. She looked around to make sure no one was watching, then grabbed the potted plant and walked away.

The homeowners were inside the home at the time.

"We were shocked. Same thing when we filed a police report - the officer was like, 'I can't believe she just did that,'" said Paul Lemieux, who shared his video on the FOX 12 Facebook page and on his own personal page.

As of Tuesday morning, Lemieux's original surveillance video was shared more than 15,000 times on Facebook.

After Lemieux spoke with a FOX 12 reporter, the woman in the video returned the potted plant to its original location. That was caught on surveillance video, too.
