A police spokesperson told The Warragul Citizen three Black Boy plants were taken from the north east corner of the Loch Street school grounds some time between 5pm Friday and 8am Saturday.
“The plants had 12 inch think trunks, so offenders would have needed tools and a large vehicle or trailer to transport them away,” the spokesperson said.
In a statement on Facebook a spokesperson for the school said the theft was “upsetting”.
“Again, our beautiful school has been the target of senseless thieves,” the spokesperson said.
“Someone has helped themselves to a number of plants from our garden, including our gorgeous Black Boy plants which were planted… near the staff car park.
“If you have seen anything please report it to the police.”
Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000, or online at crimestoppers.com.au.
