Troopers from the Stonington State Police Barracks are searching for a Grinch after two reports of stolen Christmas trees in the last two weeks.
Trooper Jason Drumheller and Trooper Raymond Snarski III reported that the holiday conifers were taken from Campbell’s Christmas Trees on Route 61 between 8 p.m. Nov. 11 and 8:30 a.m. Nov. 30 and five were stolen from Snyder’s By the Creek on Market Street outside Sunbury between Dec. 6 and Dec. 7.
The number of trees taken from Campbell’s was not specified in the police report.
The owner of Campbell’s Christmas Trees, located at 1036 Route 61 in Upper Augusta Township, and Snyder’s, located at 1551 Market St. in Upper Augusta Township, both declined comment.
However, on Snyder’s Facebook page, there is a call for help in trying to catch the thief and asking anyone with information to provide it to police.
Anyone with information regarding the incidents is asked to contact the state police at 570-286-5601.
No further information was available.
