Woman caught by Derby homeowner attempting to steal plant pots from front drive

A woman was caught red-handed attempting to steal a couple of plant pots from the front drive of a house in Derby.

The footage, captured on Tuesday morning (August 12), shows a woman crouching down attempting to take the two potted plants before getting caught by the homeowner.

Helen Large, who can be seen in the window warding off the thief, told Newsflare: "I initially only saw the dog and was going to attempt to go out and then noticed the women knelt down under the window.

"I was shocked and surprised then realised what she was attempting to do so I banged on the window to let her know I was there and for her to move on."
