Bonsai thieves steals 400-year-old tree from Japanese couple

Two Bonsai enthusiasts in Japan launched an emotional plea to thieves who stole seven trees from them. Seiji Iimura and his wife Fuyumi said the miniature trees were taken from their garden in Saitama, near Tokyo, and are estimated to be worth at least $118,000. One of the couple’s stolen trees is a near 400-year-old Shimpaku Juniper.
