CAPE CORAL, Fla.-- It's pretty tough to trim a tree without a chainsaw, but that's exactly what one local tree service was facing after it was robbed.

$10,000 worth of equipment, including a pick-up truck and several chainsaws, was stolen from Tim's Tree Service.

The owner says one of his employees asked to keep the car for the weekend, promising to detail it.

Instead, the employee and the black pick-up with a red stripe running through it never showed up.

The owner claims the thief then used the keys from the tuck to break in Wednesday night and steal more chainsaws.

The employee has not been seen since.
