A family was arrested in Spain for stealing 9,000 lbs of oranges
The great citrus heist
FOOD Orange theft
The family responsible claimed they had been "picking oranges up off the ground as they traveled," according to the site The Drive. However, with no license to have that much produce, authorities believe the thieves were planning on selling the fruit on the black market.
Refusing to pull over, there was a high-speed car chase before the police eventually were able to stop the cars. When the doors of the sedan in question were opened, thousands of oranges spilled onto the floor, marking a clear citrus robbery.
Tracking the oranges back to a warehouse in the nearby town of Carmona, it was clear the family had robbed all of the fruit.
With an increase in produce prices in Spain, unfortunately, this sort of theft is becoming more and more common.
