(AURORA, Ore. ) - At about 9:30 AM this morning deputies recieved a call from Loy Russell, owner of Russell's Nursery Inc, who reported that someone had taken 600 plants from one of the greenhouses at his nursery located at 22241 Boones Ferry Rd NE, Aurora.

The plants were assorted varieties of grafted Japanese Maple trees ranging in size from about 16" to as tall as 28". The trees had either green or purple leaves.

Mr. Russell said that the grafted area on each tree was wrapped in Scotch type tape which he says is not the usual industry method of securing grafts.

The estimated value of the stolen trees is about $5000.

Anyone with information about the stolen trees or the person or people that may have stolen them is asked to call the Marion County Sheriff's Office at (503) 588-5032.
