The Guardia Civil arrested a young man from Molvízar, accused of stealing 1,200 kilos of avocados… that’s a lot of guacamole!
The accused, together with two other individuals, is being investigated for liberating Hass avocados between the 29th of October and the 2nd of November, gaining access by breaking down the perimeter fence around a Molvízar plantation.
On the last day of their alleged light-fingeredness, a witness saw them within the orchard and alerted its owner. By the time that he arrived, only the youngest of the tricky trio was still there. The owner tried to stop him from leaving until the Guardia Civil arrived but the lad gave him the slip. Consequently, the owner reported the theft to the Guardia-Civil post in Salobreña.
Thanks to the description given, the Guardia Civil were able to identify the lad, leading to his arrest. The other two are still at large.
