Christmas time seems to bring on more thefts. Is there a correlation with the pressure and stress many experience with not having enough cash to give the gifts the want?

I think more now than ever! These times are getting harder & people are making desperate choices.

Regarding crimes, whatever happened about the homeowner who intentionally put untrained workers on the side of a hill to cut down a dangerous tree, and one was killed. He had no permit for this tree but had had previously hired a tree trimming company to do some work.
