A local story I never had ever heard of:

Someone Is Stealing Avocados, and ‘Guac Cops’ Are on the Case:

Here in San Diego County, the source of nearly half of the nation’s avocados, harvest season brings with it not only the promise of some $43.5 million worth of cilantro-laced party dip, but also a dreaded local crime: avocado theft. With the price now hovering around $1.20 a pound — roughly two avocados — Karen Grangetto awoke after a full moon last month to the telltale phantom stems at eye level on plucked boughs. She figured she had lost $1,000 to $2,000 worth of fruit.
