- a cute story out of new zealand

Loved this ... thanks Alison .

WELLINGTON, N.Z. (AP) - A middle-aged New Zealand woman rang police to report a theft of cannabis plants she had been growing in buckets at her home, news media reported today.

The crying woman told a constable at the police station in Napier the plant theft was the fourth from her property in four years. The woman, 45, lamented someone had again sneaked onto her property at night to steal her three carefully nurtured marijuana plants.

"I am a good person. I am sick of these low-lifes stealing my things," the unnamed woman told a police communications officer.

Senior Sgt. Mal Lochrie told news media late Friday the officer found it hard to stop smiling as the women gave details of the theft over the phone.

A community constable who visited her to take details of the theft also warned her horticultural pursuits could have legal consequences, Lochrie said.
