I'd like to report a burglary

A woman has been reported as ringing the police to complain about a burglary.

So what!, you say, well read on.
[quote]The 45-year-old woman rang police yesterday morning to report the overnight theft of three cannabis plants she had been growing at her home.

The woman became so upset during the call she broke down in tears. Senior Sergeant Mal Lochrie said the police communications officer who took the call found it difficult to stop smiling as the women gave details of the theft over the phone.

"I have had three marijuana plants stolen. They were in buckets," the woman told the officer.

She also bemoaned the fact it was the fourth year in a row someone had sneaked on to her Ahuriri property at night to steal cannabis plants from her shed.

"I am a good person. I am sick of these low-lifes stealing my things," she told the communications officer. [/quote]

I am no lawyer but I think she does have a legitimate complaint, it was her property and it was stolen…of course she is open to prosecuton herself, but I wonder is it still burglary?
