Criminal trespassing is a major problem if the home owner does not stay in the home overnight

In small towns, families may own multiple homes, so the home owner may not stay overnight in the home he or she owns.
This can be a major problem if the home owner is growing plants in the home.
In small towns, criminal trespassers are very active, they will enter the house when the home owner is away. They are allegedly taking away all the seedlings which grow, so though the home owner has spent a large amount on seeds, no plants are growing
It appears that someone is criminally trespassing and intentionally removing all the seedlings
