Angela Cartwright, of Holly Hill, said the plant was stolen Feb. 10 from her home, The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported. She told police she saw the 15-year-old grabbing it through her open kitchen window as she returned from walking her son to the school bus stop.
"See, I have one of your pot plants," the brazen teen allegedly yelled at her as he ran off.
"I chased him and I yelled out, "You stupid little brat, it's a tomato plant!" Cartwright told the newspaper Thursday.
Police made an arrest Wednesday after Cartwright, walking her son to the school bus, spotted a teen she identified as the thief.
