A trailer filled with 350 Christmas trees that was stolen from a western New York farm has been recovered.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office tells local media that a passer-by spotted the pickup truck and trailer Wednesday afternoon at St. Leo's Church in Hamlin, on the Lake Ontario shore 18 miles west of Rochester.

The truck and trailer had been stolen earlier that morning from a farm in Hamlin. The farmer called police after he discovered the pickup truck he'd backed into a driveway was gone and so was the 28-foot trailer behind it.

Inside the trailer were 350 Douglas fir trees worth about $12,000. It's not immediately known if all the trees have been recovered.

No suspects are in custody. Police say their investigation is continuing.
