1,000 kilos of avocados saved

POLICE in Velez Malaga have foiled two attempts to steal around 1,000 kilos of avocados.

Three people have now been arrested after a farmer complained two men had been caught taking the fruit.  When confronted by a neighbour they allegedly tried to run him over.  The men, two brothers, were eventually located by police and arrested.

Police also received a call alerting them to the theft of avocados at a plot in Velez Malaga.  On arriving at the scene, they were told two people had fled on foot when caught stealing.  Officers found they had left bags of avocados weighting 700 kilos.
