Lavern Smith of Omaha tells KETV that thieves stole hundreds of landscaping blocks that made up a retaining wall in his front and side yards.

A neighbor told Smith it happened in broad daylight last week when five men with a pickup truck pulled up, removed the blocks one-by-one and stacked them into the back of the truck before leaving. Smith says they even returned the next day with a blowtorch to remove those blocks frozen to the ground.

Smith is asking those who took the blocks to return them and rebuild the wall.
