Spanish police foil 4-tonne orange heist

Spanish police foil 4-tonne orange heist

The Spanish police were involved in a vehicle chase that lead them to discover over 4 tons of stolen oranges. Soon after the news broke on social media, people couldn't handle their curiosity after seeing pictures of cars spilling over with oranges. The cops seized four tons of the fruit and arrested the suspected orange thieves.

One of the suspects said they came from very far away and had been picking them up from the ground as they went, Europa Press reported. However, Spain has laws around the amount of fruit you can transport without paperwork and they did not have the required paperwork for 4 tonnes of fruit.

The Press also reported that a boat that was carrying fruit in Carmona, about 20 miles northwest of Seville, had reported theft of oranges hours earlier.

When the drivers saw the police cars ahead, they quickly changed direction, sending alarm belles off for the authorities as they chased them down the highway.

While one was being driven by a couple and their adult son, the other was a tourism auto driven by two brothers.

Rather than fish though, oranges poured out of the vehicles when officers opened them to see what was inside.

It was found that the oranges were stolen from a warehouse near Seville.
