Winnipeg cops follow trail of pine needles to nab Christmas

Col Man
WINNIPEG (CP) - A trail of evergreen needles was all police needed to solve the case of a pine tree purloined from the front yard of a Winnipeg home.

Two days before Christmas, the homeowner complained to police that someone had cut down and taken a pine tree from his yard. Officers went to the home Tuesday and were able to track a trail of needles to another house in the neighbourhood.
