ROME, N.Y. (AP) - State police are looking for the Grinch who stole three painted Christmas trees from a central New York farm.

Troopers say the trees were reported stolen Monday from a field at Henderberg’s Christmas Tree Farm in Rome in Oneida County. Police say the trees - two blue ones and a turquoise - are worth $240.

Owner Jay Henderberg told The Post-Standard of Syracuse says this is the first year he has experimented with coloring his Christmas trees using a spray-painted food-grade dye. Henderberg says he was inspired by colorful artificial trees sold at department stores.
