Thieves displaced from a farm during the apple season with 7000 pounds of apples



The raid was discovered on October 10, when workers from Spicer Orchards came to pick the fruit, Shannon Rowe told CNN on Thursday. Her parents own the orchard and she is a partner in the business.

"We are just shocked and stunned," said Rowe. "We just can not believe it, it was last week at night, it wiped out most of the apple harvest."

Spicer Orchards is a popular fall destination near Flint, where families come to pick their own apples and enjoy cider, donuts and other goodies.

Rowe said the theft happened in a secondary orchard where they grow apples for cider and sell them on their market. She said they checked the apples for picking a few days earlier.

Normally, a crew of two or three would take a few days to pick so many apples.

"You must have had a trained crew to pick the apples in this short time," she said.

It looks like the thieves came to the farm by taking a side street and then crossing a neighbor's property, Rowe said.

The only indication, So far, there are some tire marks.

The Genesee County Sheriff, Rober J. Pickell, told CNN that they interviewed neighbors but did not find any witnesses.
