60,000 persimmons stolen central from Japanese orchard

Some 60,000 persimmons have been stolen from an orchard in a central Japanese city. According to Gifu Prefectural Police's Gifukita police station, a farmer in the city made an emergency call at around 12:50 pm on October 18, saying: "Persimmons have been stolen from my orchard. Almost all of them are gone."

Police confirmed that some 60,000 persimmons of the Fuyu variety, worth about 3 million yen (roughly $26,000) at market price, had apparently been stolen. The orchard is about 990 m2 large. Branches of the persimmon trees were cut off with what appear to be scissors. There has been a spate of persimmon theft cases at orchards and unattended shops in Gifu Prefecture in this season every year, and the prefectural police had been increasing their vigilance. Police are investigating the case.
