Things quickly turned sour…

A man has been arrested in California for stealing lemons.

Not just a handful of lemons from the supermarket — he was found with about 800lbs (approx. 362kg) of stolen lemons in his car in the Coachella Valley.

KESQ News Channel 3 reports the citrus fruit was freshly picked from a local farm.
