BEWARE! There are plant thieves around.

That's the message from Georgi Sullivan, manager of Byron Bay holiday resort, Beach Bure in Lawson St, who said five maraya hedge plants had been stolen from a garden at the rear of the premises backing on to Gilmore Crescent.

Ms Sullivan said she only found out about the theft when her gardener asked if she knew part of her hedge had gone.

"I didn't believe it," she said.

"I would say someone has just seen them and decided they would like a hedge in their yard."

Ms Sullivan, who said the plants were about a metre tall, reported the theft to police.

"It's just a shame that someone has to do that these days," she said.

Ms Sullivan said she was concerned that plants at the new Byron Library could suffer the same fate.
