Southern California authorities confirm that three company workers have been arrested in the theft of up to $300,000 worth of avocados. The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department says they were arrested last week and charged with grand theft of fruit and are jailed for lack of $250,000 bail each.

Detectives began investigating the men in May after getting a tip that they were conducting unauthorized cash sales of avocados from a facility in the city of Oxnard owned by Mission Produce.

The sheriff’s department says the company estimates the avocado loss at about $300,000.
