A thief who ripped sapling citrus trees from the grounds of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Orangevale ostensibly stole from the congregation, an Eagle Scout and the poor. Captured on church security camera video, the man can be seen loosening the ground by digging around one of the trees and then yanking it up. He is later seen on video wheeling away several of the trees in a refuse can. Video courtesy Christ the King Lutheran Church
