  • Police in Seville Spain came across the bizarre scene when they pulled over two cars after a short chase

Police in Seville, Spain, caught five people with 4,000 kilos of stolen oranges earlier this week. Police seized the four tons of produce, and arrested the drivers for suspected theft. When they opened the rear door of a small sedan, hundreds of oranges spilled out.

Sure enough, the officers found both passenger cars stuffed completely full of oranges, while the van looks to be hilariously underutilized in pictures from the scene. 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. In the nearby town of Carmona, authorities were notified that a shipment of oranges had gone missing.




Seville city security spokesman, Juan Carlos Cabrera, told Europa Press that the arrests were important not only in thwarting theft but also in "preserving the food security of the possible consumers who would have had these oranges".

The group also lacked the legal paperwork needed to transport such a massive quantity of fruit. When police tried to pull the cars over, the vehicles took off leading to officers chasing them through a dirt road. The four tonnes of stolen fruit are worth € 1400.
