  • Thieves try to steal 4,000kg of oranges

Police officers in Seville, Spain had a juicy problem on their hands, after pulling over £1,000 worth of oranges squeezed into the back seats of two cars.

All three vehicles in the convoy suddenly changed direction after spotting the marked patrol auto. The oranges had been taken from a warehouse and placed in the two vehicles. Authorities continued questioning the people and a lot of them couldn't explain where the four tons of oranges had come from. When they opened the rear door of a small sedan, hundreds of oranges spilled out.

The drivers claimed they were "coming from very far away and had been stopping and collecting oranges along the way", Europa Press reported.

Toronto Landscaper Charged With Multiple Counts of First Degree Murder
The Toronto police had launched an investigation in November 2012 looking into the disappearances of three men from Gay Village. Prior to his arrest two weeks ago, McArthur was self-employed as a landscaper under the company name "Artistic Design".

A van - also loaded with oranges - was later found nearby. The oranges had no labelling or invoices, which led to police to suspect they had been stolen. Police also suspected that there was something wrong going on when they noticed that the vehicles were driving too close to each other.

Cops got suspicious when they saw three vehicles ahead make sharp turns down a dirt road, the Europa Press reports. Theft of oranges is not uncommon in Spain, where farmers have even reportedly hired vigilantes to protect their orchards.
