A family in Spain was arrested with what most would consider some pretty crazy cargo in their vehicles.
According to T+L, “when police noticed some suspicious driving, a short car chase ended with...” four tons of oranges.
In total, five people were arrested and police in Seville, Spain came across over 8,000 pounds of oranges in three cars.
The family had a pretty weak response when trying to explain why they had so many of the fruits. They claimed to have stopped and collected them as they drove from far away!
T+L mentions that, “they lacked the proper permits to be carrying that much fruit!”
Further holes in their story were revealed as a robbery was reported in the town of Carmona which isn’t too far away. Hours earlier a shipment of oranges had been stolen.
The family arrested included a couple and their three sons.
I was shocked to read that this kind of crime isn’t so surprising in Spain. When the price of oranges rises, similar robberies tend to take place. Crazy!
