Trees stolen from Bethlehem Lions Club fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

GLENMONT, N.Y. - The Bethlehem Lions Club was set up to sell Christmas trees off Route 9W in Glenmont early Saturday when they realized 34 Nova Scotia Balsam trees were missing.

The Christmas trees are sold by the Bethlehem Lions Club to help buy much needed items, such as hearing aids and glasses, for hearin and vision impaired children and elderly. The club has lost nearly $1,200 in profit now that the 34 trees have been taken.

Members of the Bethlehem Lions Club are asking for the public's help, not only to find the crooks, but to help the Club make their tree lot more secure. They are hoping an alarm business will step in to help keep an eye on their trees.

They will continue selling the remaining trees in the Glenmont lot off Route 9W every weekend through December 16th.

Bethlehem Police Lt. Tom Heffernan says they have no leads at this time. 

Anyone with information on the missing trees, or suspicious people trying to sell Christmas trees all of a sudden, is asked to give Bethlehem Police a call.

If you're interested in donating money or sponsoring a security system to help Glenmont's Bethlehem Lions Club recoup their stolen tree losses and secure the lot against future thefts, please call Rich Rudofsky at 518-439-3908.
