Five people were arrested for the theft. The police reportedly became suspicious after spotting three cars that abruptly changed directions on spotting police patrol cars.
After a short chase down a dirt path, they managed to pull over two of the three cars. While one was being driven by a couple and their adult son, the other was a tourism car driven by two brothers.
Oranges overflowed from one vehicle, while the other contained hundreds of oranges packed into bags.
None of the five people could tell the police where the oranges came from.
They were arrested at the scene after the police learned that a warehouse in Carmona had reported the theft of a large number of oranges only a few hours ago.
