According to reports, at 9:00 a.m. on January 2, villagers in Qixin village, Mazhou Town, Huichang County found a lot of mud on the cement ground when they cycled past the ancient trees. They thought it was the materials used to build the house that scattered on the ground, but the villagers didnt care. But when he got close to the ancient tree, he saw that the ancient arhat pine tree standing in the village for generations had disappeared. There was only a big pit several meters wide left on the ground. The ancient tree that stayed here well last night disappeared overnight. The villagers contacted the village committee immediately, and the village Committee then called the police.

The village branch of Qixin village, Ou Ling, introduced to the reporter of the Beijing news that the stolen ancient tree has been here since it was recorded by the villagers. This tree is recorded in the genealogy. It was the sapling brought back from the outside of the village by the villagers at that time and then planted here. It should be 2300 years from now. Ouling said that some people wanted to buy ancient trees at a high price a few years ago, and the villagers all disagreed, this tree is evergreen all the year round and has survived for a hundred years, which is a symbol of longevity and well-being. It is very meaningful for us, so the villagers also love the ancient trees very much. But what they didnt expect was that someone even thought of ancient trees.

After receiving the police, the police launched an investigation and found that a large truck and a white car had arrived at the scene in the early morning of the same day. After more than 10 hours of investigation, the police found suspects and vehicles in a remote parking lot, and then successfully arrested three suspects, and found the stolen ancient trees in the carriage of the truck.

According to the Huichang County Public Security Bureaus public information in Ping An Huichang, three suspects confessed to the facts of the crime. One of them said that he had worked in the village in 2004, and then he heard that the tree was very valuable, so he thought about the ancient tree. 16 years later, he didnt forget the old tree. After finding a buyer, he decided to start on the night of January 1. Then he found crane, trailer and tree digging workers to start the crime. When he got it, the old trees had not been taken away because he did not receive the money. Only a day later, they were caught by the police. Two suspects were detained by the public security organs for theft, while the other one was also faced with administrative penalty of transportation without certificate.
