Rangers Look For Suspects To Take Sap Tap Rap

PORTLAND, Maine (March 21, 2013)—Forest rangers in Maine are looking for the thieves who are illegally tapping maple trees and stealing the sap used to make maple syrup.

Ranger Jeff Currier said the Maine Forest Service has received a dozen complaints from landowners about taps in their trees.

Maple syrup sells for about $50 a gallon, and Currier says the number of sap tappers is up this year.
