BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - A Grinch stole dozens of Christmas trees from a Bed-Stuy nursery last week, and police still haven't caught any suspects.

Deborah Young, who owns the Stuyvesant Avenue nursery, says a customer called her at 5 a.m. on Dec. 10 to report the stolen trees.

She arrived at the shop to find the lock busted and wreaths and trees missing.

Young says burglars have targeted her nursery before, but this was her biggest loss to date.

"Of course I'm angry about the loss, but I feel sorry for people that have no options other than to take from other people," she says.

She has since restocked. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
