Police in Spain noticed a suspicious drive. After a chase five people were arrested with four tons of oranges in their car.
Police in Seville recorded over 8,000 pounds of oranges from three cars, which the suspects claimed were for personal consumption. The suspects said they were “coming from very far away and had been stopping and collecting oranges along the way.”
They lacked the proper permits, however, to be carrying that much fruit. Another knock against their case was a robbery report from a few hours earlier. In the nearby town of Carmona, authorities were notified that a shipment of oranges had gone missing.
The police arrested the five travelers-a couple and their three sons-for theft, and the investigation remains ongoing.
