CNN reports authorities became suspicious after spotting two cars driving close to one another, before an attempt was made to pull them over, seeing them change direction abruptly.

In a freaky incident, police in Seville, Spain, pulled over two cars filled to the brim with stolen oranges. When they opened the rear door of a small sedan, hundreds of oranges spilled out.

A truck also containing oranges was found later on. The cops seized four tons of the fruit and arrested the suspected orange thieves.

Theft of oranges is not uncommon in Spain, where farmers have even reportedly hired vigilantes to protect their orchards. Smuggling of mass quanitities of fruits and vegetables is relatively common, although the use of ordinary vehicles is a less common sight for law enforcement in Spain.
