Orchid Thieves. Filthy rotten pondscum!

I was looking for something else when I found this article about B and T Fern and Orchids.

Really some people are the worst!

 Seems its not a recent problem either!

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/2748028  If its hard to read  then read from the far left

What I was looking for was the text to match the photograph below.

I had the photo stored away and believe it was from a local paper in North Queensland and the theif was caught with hundreds of Dendrobium bigibums.

Can anyone help please. 

Also I would be interested in passing on more stories of Pondscum orchid theives if you have any.

    I found that article as well just after I visited B&T’s closing down sale. Heartbreaking. After visiting her place I’m not surprised though. There’s no security. If they’re prized orchids why didn’t she lock them up?
