Story highlightsTwo trailers stuffed with trees were stolen from a Costco parking lotThey were worth $35,000, officials said
As in two semi-truck trailers filled with fragrant Fraser firs.
Miami-Dade police are on the hunt for the trailers, which were stolen late Tuesday from the parking lot of a Costco megastore in suburban Kendall, Florida.
The heist is worth $35,000, according to the garden equipment police report on the incident. The company that owns the trailers, Florida Beauty, pinged one of the trailers off of Interstate 75 near wood Weston but then lost the signal.
Frank Ducassi, vice president creative outdoor designs of sales for Florida Beauty, told the Miami Herald the trailers were brand new. They were 2015 models, to be exact — worth $78,000.
Hopefully, they were insured.
Perhaps the thief ought to consider a Costco membership if he or she doesn’t go straight to jail.
