Pensioners Stealing Seeds in England

What's the most stolen item in garden centers in England?

"Recession-hit pensioners are using foil-lined bags to get past old-fashioned security tagging systems and steal thousands of packets of seeds from garden centres, according to a crime expert...Davies says seeds, the most stolen item from garden centres according to a recent survey, have a low profit margin and are often stolen by the elderly who do not see stealing seeds quite in the same light as taking grown plants. "
