50 trees stolen at Escambia Co. farm


An Escambia County woman wants to know who stole dozens of Christmas trees off her lot this week.

Suzanne Eaton says there were more than 300 trees on the lot on 9-Mile Road at the beginning of the week. But Wednesday morning, one of her workers noticed the lot looked a little empty.

Eaton says her inventory shows about 50 trees are now missing, a loss of about $5,000. Some of that money would have been donated to Tate High School's baseball team.

"If parents are coming out and helping support it hurts everybody."

Eaton is now working on a way to secure the lot to make sure no more trees are stolen.
