As the saying goes, they would steal anything that isn't nailed down. Apparently, that now applies to shrubs and dirt in Atlantic City.

According to Brian Ireland, owner/distiller of Alibi Gin and Atlantic City resident, a person walked up to his house around sunrise Saturday morning and ripped a 3-year-old peony shrub right out of the ground.

You might be asking yourself, "who steals shrubs?" And you might not even believe the story until you see the video...

Anyone with information about the person seen ripping Brian's shrub out of the ground is asked to contact Atlantic City Police.

As for Brian, he tells us he's pro-Atlantic City through and through. We salute him for making Atlantic City a more attractive place for everyone, even though a dirtbag walked all over his efforts.
