Thieves steal 31 trees from St Albans garden
THIEVES stole 31 seven-foot high trees from a front garden in St Albans on Monday.
The leylandii trees, a fast-growing evergreen, were taken between 2pm on Sunday February 5 and 11am the following day from the front garden of a house in Mile House Lane.
The trees were planted on the outside of the front garden fence but were still on the victim’s land.
PC Adam Wills said: “The trees were around seven-foot high and would have taken some time to remove. It is possible that there are a lot of witnesses who believed that it was a legitimate removal at the time.
“It is likely that the offenders used a lorry or truck to remove the trees and this may have been in the area for some time.”
