BOKEELIA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities are investigating after they say someone stole 500 pounds of lychee fruit from a southwest Florida grove.
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office says the victim last checked on her fruit grove on Friday.
The News-Press reports she thinks the suspect broke into the locked grove through a hole in the fence.
She estimated about 8,000 pieces fruit were taken, which she says costs about $3,000.
