Four men who stolen oranges and sold them at roundabouts around the Vega Baja area have been arrested by the Guardia Civil in Callosa de Segura. The illegal fruit pickers, all of whom are Spanish, pilfered from farms across the region, and in one case nearly ran over an angry farmer who tried to stop them. Farm equipment was also stolen by the gang, who Guardia say pilfered around 10 thousand euro of oranges.
