    Stealing – another owner in our small block of 4 units has a cleaning lady who I saw stealing one of our outside pot plants. when my wife emailed the owner to complain, she was told that the cleaner was trustworthy and has worked with other members of her family without issues.

    Well, I saw her putting the plant in her car & she (the thief) saw that I noticed her, so I am annoyed that my word about this is not believed or just ignored. She has our common keys & can no longer be trusted.

    My wife is fond of her plants & her efforts to beautify our entry hall and paths. Nice big potplants sell for good money at Sunday markets; perhaps this is where the plant ended up.

    I wonder if there is any possibility that the cleaner’s employer is also in some way complicit.

    Cleaner: “Ooh, those pot plants are lovely.”

    Employer:  “Just take one … we kind of own them … because they are on common property …”

    I would be sending a letter to the strata committee stating that you have seen an unnamed employee of an unnamed resident stealing a pot plant from common property and that the resident has refused to have the plant returned. Can the committee investigate the potential for installing security cameras to protect other residents from theft.

    That should put the caterpillars among the pot plants.

    Call the police. At a minimum, for of the cost of a pot plant you will be sure to have her put on notice (the police may know a little more about her history if she has one).
