Astonished to wake up one morning, Steve Woolnough discovered his artificial grass lawn was stolen, in the middle of the night. Woolnough, 54, of Ipswich, Suffolk, had installed himself the 100sq ft fake astroturf grass outside his home. Now left with a bare dirt ground, the charges are greater than four hundred dollars to replace the artificial grass, a premium outdoor lawn that did not require any maintenance.
He said: 'I'm absolutely seething over it, I really am. How dare someone have the cheek to steal what I have had to work hard for. You try and make your house look nice and someone comes along and steals what you have got.'
Forensic experts scoured the area as the thieves left behind footprints footprints.
Woolnough has enjoyed the artificial grass in his lawn garden for six years. Attempts to steal this grass in the past have been unsuccessful due to the heavy weight of the grass mat. However, it seems this plot to steal the grass was planned, beginning to end. Stealing the artificial lawn would have some heavy removal, enough time to pull it up without damaging the grass as well as a get-away-vehicle.
