Organizations sells out of Christmas trees after theft


BETHLEHEM, N.Y. - The Bethlehem Lions Club tells News10 they have sold the last of their Christmas trees as of Sunday, after 34 of the Nova Scotia Balsam trees the club sells for charity were stolen several weeks ago.

NEWS10 covered a story on the theft and, subsequently, an alarm company stepped forward and donated a surveillance system to the club. The Bethlehem Lions Club says they attribute the quick sale of the trees, as well as the donated security system, to NEWS10's coverage of the story.

The club sold the Christmas trees in a lot off Route 9W in Glenmont to help buy much needed items, such as hearing aids and glasses, for hearing and vision impaired children and elderly.

They lost nearly $1,200 in profit after the 34 trees were taken.

Bethlehem Police say they still have not caught the alleged tree crooks.
