Wilmington, NC-- A North Carolina environmental group is offering a $1,500 reward to find the thief who stole more than 1,000 Venus flytraps from a city garden in Wilmington.

The North Carolina Coastal Land Trust says it was outraged by the theft at the Stanley Rehder Carnivorous Plant Garden where the organization holds a conservation easement and hosts a Flytrap Frolic for children in the spring.

Someone took almost 90 percent of the flytraps in the garden over the Memorial Day weekend. Each plant is valued at about $20.

The Coastal Land Trust collected the money for the reward through a new Flytrap Fund that will also help buy new plants for the garden and improve security.
