Thieves Steal entire Vineyard

Police in southern Germany are looking for thieves who stole an entire vineyard of grapes from under their noses.

The criminals made off with the field full of grapes by “running a professional harvesting machine over the entire vineyard”, the police said.

Most galling of all for the police is the fact that the vineyard does not lie on some remote hillside, but is to be found right next to the car park of a major supermarket on the outskirts of the village of Deidesheim.

The resourceful thieves struck at some point between teatime last Wednesday and sunset the following day, netting 3,527 lb of the white grapes used to make Riesling wine. The haul is estimated to be worth 8,000 euros  $9,272.
