California police arrest avocado thieves
Three men in California have been charged with theft for selling boxes of avocados from the company they work for and selling them to customers at a lower price.
The suspects, all employees of Mission Produce, one of the world’s largest avocado distributors, were arrested on Wednesday.
Some customers to whom the thieves sold boxes of avocado for $20 to $30 (Dh73 to Dh110) per box instead of the actual price of $50 (Dh183) tipped the men off.
Mission Produce president Steve Barnard said partial pallets and boxes of avocados were purloined and sold from the back door of the distribution centre in Oxnard, about 60 miles outside of Los Angeles, reports the Telegraph.
Footage from CCTV cameras in the distribution center showed the men selling avocados confirming the theft.
