ENGLEWOOD, Fla. - 21 Christmas trees have turned up missing at the tree sales lot at Lemon Bay High School.  The school sells the trees as a fundraiser for the ROTC and Project Graduation groups.

According to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office, 130 trees were delivered on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and were kept in a locked area through that Wednesday and Thursday.

The tree lot opened on Friday, but a tree count taken on Saturday taking into account the ones sold revealed the 21 trees were missing.

There were no signs of forced entry to the fenced in area.

Anyone with information concerning this case is asked to please call the Sheriff’s Office at (941) 639-2101, or Crime Stoppers at 800-780-TIPS.
