      Police: Pine tree pilfered in fraternity pledging


      There's one less tree standing at the University of Michigan after what police say was part of a fraternity pledging activity.


      The Michigan Daily reports campus police interviewed a dozen students after the pine tree was stolen early Wednesday from a parking lot and taken to a fraternity house.


      Police didn't release the name of the fraternity involved. The roughly 13-foot tree was found in the bed of a pickup truck and was taken by investigators.


      The Ann Arbor News reports the case is being investigated as a larceny. Police say such tree thefts increase in December ahead of the Christmas holiday.
