ALFRED, Maine (AP) - Hundreds of holiday wreaths have been stolen from a Maine farm.

Gile’s Family Farm owner Frank Boucher said Monday that someone stole a trailer containing more than 200 wreaths from behind the Alfred business sometime between 6 p.m. Friday and 7 a.m. Saturday.

The staff had wanted to unload the wreaths on Saturday, but didn’t see them when they arrived at work.

Boucher estimates the total value of the stolen items at about $5,000.

Boucher says he thinks the thieves may have been after the decorations because there were more expensive trailers nearby.

State police are investigating.
