WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) -- It's not quite an open and shut case.

Sheriff's deputies in Brunswick County are looking for a thief who took 10,000 fly trap plants from a local grower. Authorities say the plants were taken from the greenhouses at Fly Trap Farm sometime overnight last Friday.

The plants are valued at about $65,000. Some tools also were taken.

The growers are offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible.
