Most thieves grab items they can pawn or sell quickly such as electronics or jewelry. However, an elderly British woman recently was the victim of an unusual theft: a 1,000 square foot section of her artificial lawn.

According to a report in the Sept. 19, 2015, edition of World magazine, the woman noticed her lawn was missing one morning in August. “At first, I thought someone had dumped loads of sand,” she explains, “because you don’t think anyone would take your lawn.”

We assume the thief disposed of the turf—probably at a yard sale.
