PROSSER, Wash. --  A Christmas tree lot was the target of burglars over the weekend, but the thieves didn't go after trees, they took tools locked up inside a trailer used as the lots office. Prosser police say this crime is common at many outdoor businesses and construction sites. According to the owners, more than $5,000 worth of equipment used to cut the trees were stolen. A portion of the proceeds from the tree sales goes to the Boys and Girls Club of Prosser.
