Eat your share of guacamole yesterday? That might have been the plan of two twenty-something dudes who were busted yesterday after taking 200 pounds of avocados from a Temecula grove. Arrested about a mile from the scene, the duo’s bail was set at $5,000 for stealing $100 worth of fruit–clearly not the street value of 200 pounds of green goodies. Does “Tis the season” work as a good defense? [Press Enterprise]
