SPRING HOPE — In perhaps a case of no good deed going unpunished, someone walked off with the Spring Hope Garden Club’s cart while members were busy beautifying downtown.

The missing cart is described as a steel mesh Gorilla Cart with 400-pound load bearing capacity and 10-inch tires, according to information provided by Peggy Leggett, the club’s co-chair.

The garden club sprang out of the Downtown Development Board in April with a goal of sprucing up the Spring Hope Public Library and Depot Park. The gardening enthusiasts planted flowers around the building.

On Nov. 10, members met and performed more work downtown.

“We had a much-needed, beautiful, sunny working day,” Leggett said. “Then someone absconded with our ‘Little Water Wagon.’”

The club has ordered a new cart, but it cost $50 more than the stolen one, which is valued at around $108.

“We have already ordered a replacement,” Leggett said. “But it went up $51. Bummer.”

Leggett said the club hopes the perpetrator quietly returns the cart or someone in the community donates money to cover the new one.

Leggett thanked Spring Hope Police Officer Patrick Lenhart for launching an immediate investigation.

Lenhart suggested the club use a bicycle chain to lock up the new cart, Leggett said.

Anyone with information about the cart can call the Spring Hope Police Department at 252-478-5197.

“It bothers me greatly that our little town is not as safe as I thought,” Leggett said.
