Garden ornaments, solar lights worth $1000 stolen

A MARYBOROUGH woman is distraught and living in fear after thieves stole several of her prized possessions.

The Alice St resident, who does not want to be named, said $1000 worth of garden ornaments and solar lights were taken from her home on Monday evening.

"We never thought this could happen in Maryborough," she said.

"I know it's only material but it keeps me going.

"That's not right, that you can go in some ones yard in the middle of the night."

The woman said she did hear some noise on the night but assumed it was party-goers.

"When I got up in the morning, I couldn't believe it," she said.

The woman said about 20 solar lights were missing, as well as garden ornaments including crocodiles, lions, a shoe, ducks, parrots and pelicans.

"There's nothing left," she said.

"I think it was well-planned and they must have had a car ... there were lots of heavy ones."

The woman said she was asking the public to please contact the police if they notice someone with new garden gnomes in their garden.

"Maryborough used to be a very peaceful place," she said.

"I'm disheartened ... what did they not take?

"We don't trust anyone anymore, we need help so it doesn't happen to anyone else."
