Tree Thief Leaves Coniferous Trail
When an 18-foot blue spruce disappeared from the front yard of a home in Winnipeg, Manitoba, two days before Christmas, it wasn't too hard to figure out where it went. A trail of pine cones and needles led from the tree's stump to the front door of a house across the street. Inside was the tree, which the occupant claimed he'd bought from a door-to-door tree salesman. "It's got to be the dumbest crime of the century," apartment caretaker Cindy Peterson told the Associated Press.
