The theft of plants from a local nursery is under investigation by the Jessamine County Sheriff's Office.
Shrubbery was reported stolen Wednesday morning by Springhouse Gardens on U.S. 68 northwest of Nicholasville, said Chief Deputy Allen Peel.
An employee said that after two men got into a blue, older model pickup truck and took off around 8 a.m., some shrubbery was later discovered to be missing, according to Peel.
A full inventory and value of the stolen plants was not available Wednesday afternoon.
This is believed to be the second theft this week, because the nursery found on Monday that a Japanese maple valued at $500 was missing.
