There's a grinch ripping off Christmas trees in Jackson County's Leoni Township.

Officers responded to the 3200 block of Page Avenue in Michigan Center Wednesday morning after the owner noticed seven Christmas trees had been stolen.

Officers say someone has been stealing trees from that location for the last few weeks.

    This is not surprising.We live in rural area Mich.Many tree farms can be found.Trees over crowded,as many have went to the fake trees.It is nothing to find a few trees cut and gone without some one paying for them.Some time 2-5 are gone.Thief must of picked up for a few friends.Prices around xmas and not only the trees but everything has gone up and up in prices.Many families across Mich will have nothing to very little this yr,thousands can't afford the monthly bills,so Christmas is not much if anything.Most think all are being helped but wrong.Stealing is wrong,but I look to see more of it as many can't get work,have lost so much and see no hope.God be with all.

    Ok. If you're the type who likes to steal stuff, why would stealing pine trees be a priority? It doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

    How sad that somebody would do this. Obviously to take more than one it wasn't because they were broke and needed one. The owner works very hard to keep this business going and it's pathetic to think someone would do this to him. If it was a family who couldn't afford a tree I can bet he would give one to them but I doubt that any family needs seven. I hope our PSO guys keep a close eye on this place and nail these guys.
