STAFFORD, Va. (AP) -- Police in Stafford are looking for a thief who made off with 15 cypress trees.
Investigators believe the trees standing up to 5 feet tall were taken sometime between Sunday and early Monday. The homeowner discovered 15 holes where the trees had been on Sunday evening.
The Free Lance-Star (http://bit.ly/1f11RyJ) reports that a spokesman for the sheriff said the tree thief used digging equipment and possibly a trailer to dig up and haul away the trees.
Each was valued at $75.
