Wayland Boy Scout Troop 1 of Cochituate show their gratitude to the community for the outpouring of donations they received after the theft of 50 of their fund-raising Christmas trees.
Police report that someone stole $2000.00 worth of Christmas trees from the troop's tree stand next to the Methodist church late last Saturday night. Once the news got out, several area landscapers and nurseries donated new trees and local residents donated thousands of dollars to the troop.
The sale of the trees is the troop's only fund-raiser and it pays for various hiking and camping trips throughout the year.
Police have no solid leads in the case.
What kind of person sneaks up to a church and steals Christmas trees from Boy Scouts?!
