Cucumber thefts

My good mate, former PNG kiap Paul Oates in Queensland, Australia, remembers my posting about the theft of cucumbers from my kids' backyard garden at Gerehu.
He sent in the news article below about cucumber thefts in Australia.
"Mate," Paul writes "it's not just happening in Gerehu. Adelaide now suffers from it."

A SPATE of cucumber thefts has Adelaide police in a pickle.
More than $10,000 worth of cucumbers have been stolen in 11 separate robberies in the past three months.
Thieves have targeted market gardens north of Adelaide, with police saying the latest robbery - of 50 bags of cucumbers - was reported from a glasshouse at Virginia at the weekend.
"The issue with the cucumber is how do you and I tell who owns a different cucumber?,'' SA Police Chief Inspector Kym Zander told ABC Radio today.
"We're having difficulty establishing where they (the cucumbers) are going.''
