Williams Orchard in LaPorte County, Indiana had an awful thing happen to them. Fifty thousand apples were recently stolen.

FIFTY THOUSAND.

Not just a bag of apples, thousands of apples were stolen from the orchard. The owner of the orchard discovered an entire section of trees picked clean. CBS details -

The apples that disappeared were worth $30,000. Owners believe the thieves put down tarps and shook the trees, hauling apples away.

The good news is the stolen apples were actually only about 5 percent of the orchard’s crop. According to CBS -

The owner said they had just recently installed a new fence, but had not put the locks in yet. The owner thinks whoever took such a large amount was probably trying to make applesauce or cider.

This is so wrong, but at least the orchard didn't lose too much of its crop.
