January 12, 2022 | 9 Comments

The police have appealed for information after “significant quantities” of produce including broccoli, beets, green zucchini, and sweet potato were reported stolen from farmers.

A  police spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Police Service has recently received a number of reports of theft of produce from farmers’ gardens.

“Members of the public are urged, should you be approached by individuals who are not known farmers, or their representatives, selling produce, please do not purchase these items as they may be stolen.

“Among the items recently reported stolen from farmers’ plots are significant quantities of:

  • Broccoli
  • Beets
  • Green zucchini
  • Sweet potato

“The public should be aware that stolen vegetables, may have recently been chemically treated. Consuming produce too soon after a chemical application, could be detrimental to health.

“Stealing agricultural produce, or receiving such goods, carries a maximum fine of $10,000 or five years in prison.

“Anyone who suspects they may have been offered stolen produce for sale or who may have any information on theft from farms gardens, is asked to call 211 or, the main police number 295-0011.”

    We’re approaching the breakdown of society – people cannot feed themselves.

    This is what you get for electing incompetents.

    They are stealing them to eat them not sell them…this is what it has come to. Those without will continue to take from those who have, it’s that simple

    People have been found doing this ‘on the regular’ and selling to the public. Even from a supposed ‘legal’ stall.

    The thefts are not a small quantity a family or single person would need or could easily eat.

    Our experience has been large quantities, obviously to sell e.g. a whole row of carrots. Not one left for the grower!

    If someone needed a few of anything, I’m sure almost any grower would gladly offer them. This is wayyyy more than that.
