Plants, tree stolen from Maple Valley roundabout

MAPLE VALLEY, Wash. — The city of Maple Valley is asking the public's help in identifying who's responsible and recovering several plants that were stolen from a city roundabout over the weekend.

City officials said on their Facebook page that multiple plants and a large weeping cedar tree disappeared at a city-owned roundabout at Southeast Tahoma Way and Summit Park Way Southeast.

The suspected thief left behind a trail of rocks and dirt and damaged other plants. The estimated loss of the plants, damages to the remaining landscaping and labor will cost the city about $600.
