75,000 plastic crates pinched

Worth €208,000 it seems.

They were taken from a company supply depot in Gador and are used to pack fruit in. Two men have now been taken into custody over the matter – one of the blokes used to work for the firm in question, whilst his mate had a huge truck.

75,000 plastic crates

It seems these big plastic crates can be melted down and reused, so the couple were flogging them to local recyling companies. Police say 52 tons of them were worth around €10,554 to the recycling company.

The two lads are thought to have made about €15k from the theft.
