A resident of Greenfield Commons, a housing complex at Villa Avenue and Greenfield Street, reported to police Monday evening that a woman stole artificial flowers from her yard.

The resident, who reported the alleged theft at about 7 p.m., said she yelled at the woman to stop, but the intruder just smiled at her as she took the flowers, valued at $5. The flower pilferer then walked away.

The woman was described as a white female with black hair wearing a white top and black pants.
