Thousands Of Dollars Worth Of Christmas Trees Stolen From Lot

GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) — A Grinch has made off with thousands of dollars in Christmas trees from a Gardnerville tree lot.

Theft of the trees owned by Oregon-based Ferguson Farms was discovered Monday morning at the lot along U.S. 395 near Industrial Way.

According to a report filed with the Douglas County sheriff’s office, an employee who stayed at the lot in an RV woke up Monday to find a wire fence around the trees had been cut. The police report says tire tracks appeared to indicate a vehicle backed up to the downed fence.

About 65 trees were taken.

Ken Ferguson of Ferguson Farms tells KRNV-TV he believes his tree lots are targeted because he charges less money and often gives trees away to people who can’t afford them.
