There is some news in the wake of our midnight robbery in June, but it’s mostly that we’re still largely in the dark.
The good news is that New Ipswich police have recovered the stolen plants, a bit the worse for wear, and returned them to us. A local lawyer has also approached the police, and from what we understand he represents the thief. We also know that there is a discussion underway between this lawyer and the prosecutor’s office concerning what the charges might be. Theoretically, the charges might be anything from a felony down to a violation.
Ara feels the miscreant should have to work off whatever the penalty is by shoveling manure in our chicken barn, but it appears the legal system can’t assign cruel and unusual punishment. But more than that, we don’t know.
We’ll keep you posted as we learn more. And thanks to everyone for their expressions of concern and their sympathy!
