New York police looking for thief who stole 350 Christmas trees

Police in western New York are looking for the thief who drove off with a trailer full of Christmas trees.

Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokesman John Helfer says the holiday heist happened sometime between midnight Tuesday and 6:30 a.m. Wednesday in Hamlin, 18 miles west of Rochester and near the shore of Lake Ontario.

A farmer called police after he discovered the pickup truck he'd backed into a driveway was gone and so was the 28-foot trailer behind it.

Inside the trailer were 350 Douglas fir trees worth about $12,000.

Police are looking for the 2011 gray pickup truck and black trailer emblazoned with the words "Niagara Landscaping" on the rear ramp door.
