  • Thieves tried to rob homeowner of synthetic lawn at their Munster home in Perth
  • Father Rhett said his wife discovered the damaged lawn early Saturday morning

A family has been left with hundreds of dollars in damages after brazen thieves tried to rip up their front lawn. 

Homeowner Rhett was left shocked at the attempted theft after his wife discovered his artificial lawn had been cut up at their Munster home in Perth. 

‘They’ve actually come and cut it with a stanley knife and cut it into sections,’ he told  Yahoo 7.

The father took to Facebook to post images of the decimated lawn on Saturday.

At first he thought the damage was a random act of vandalism, but upon closer inspection found the destruction to be a lot more calculated.

Images of the cut lawn show the turf cut into three sections, with one part folded in half.

Rhett said either the thieves got cold feet or realised the heaviness of the synthetic grass before they made off.

And what they left behind was a large repair bill.

Rhett said it cost over $6,000 to lay the synthetic grass, but that has all gone down the drain. 

‘It all has to be redone now because it’s shot,’ the father explained

‘It was perfectly laid – so it looks all saggy now.’

He suspects the brazen attempted theft happened between midnight and the early hours of Saturday morning, before his wife woke up to find the mess.

He said she had woken up to change the nappy on the pair’s newborn baby when she looked out the window and noticed the damage.

Rhett said it wasn’t the ‘best start to the morning.’
