‘Tis the season for stealing? More than 350 Christmas trees were stolen earlier this week in Hamlin, New York.

According to NBC News 10, a gray pickup truck and a black cargo trailer filled with 350 Christmas trees were stolen on Tuesday morning from a home on Walker Lake Ontario Road. The trailer contained 350 Douglas-fir trees valued at over $12,000.

The thieves may have made it out of the driveway unnoticed but police do have a pretty solid description of the missing vehicle. The 2011 pickup truck has the license number 22081JP and the trailer has the license plate BC485OZ. The trailer is described as being eight feet tall and 28 feet long with the words Niagra Landscaping on the back.

If you see the truck, and you want to save Christmas, you can call CrimeStoppers at 423-9300.

Sadly, this isn’t the only major theft reported today. The Inquisitr reported earlier that more than $2 million in toys had been stolen from the Salvation army. The Salvation Army theft occurred over two years but was only recently caught after a whistleblower brought the scam to the attention of the organization.
