TOMS RIVER – Two Christmas trees were stolen from the Silverton Fire Company, who were selling them as a fundraiser.
The thefts occurred at around 7 p.m. on December 11, according to video surveillance. One of the trees was already purchased and was going to be delivered the next day.
Video showed two cars come onto the property. Two people came out and helped themselves to a tree.
“It’s very obvious that we were sold out of trees as the area was dark, no members were present and they even look at the tree sales tags which had a family name and delivery date on it,” fire company personnel said on Facebook.
