Cops find cars packed with stolen fruit after chase

Spanish police find 8,000 lbs of stolen oranges in traffic stop

Officers initiated a short pursuit with the drivers along a dirt road before being stopped. The four tonnes of stolen fruit are worth € 1400. It provides so much that at times it even has serious overproduction issues.

The care was stuffed with hundreds of oranges. As the police opened the door, oranges seemingly tumbled out. Still, the owners reported the theft.

However, it was when the cars were stopped that the situation became considerably more unusual.

Five people were found in the cars and were questioned once they were pulled over. Soon after the news broke on social media, people couldn't handle their curiosity after seeing pictures of cars spilling over with oranges. For some reason, the ones in the van were neatly wrapped in sacks, while the ones in the sedan and wagon were not. Although caught red-handed, they had an explanation at the ready.

A third vehicle was also discovered in connection with the mass theft, carrying even more oranges. Remember how Spain is Europe's largest orange producer? 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.
