JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police are searching for a pepper picker who helped themselves to the fruits of one man's labors.

A 58-year-old Jonesboro man told police Saturday he went to work at 10 a.m. Friday.

When he returned home at 7 p.m. he discovered his backyard fence had been bent in two places.

What’s more, someone had stolen approximately $50 worth of peppers and tomatoes from his garden.

The victim said he did not know who would do such a thing, but believes people living in the apartment complex behind his house could be responsible.
