NATIONAL Police in Velez-Malaga have arrested three men suspected of a large-scale advocados theft.

The men, aged 21 -24, were arrested at a finca in the Axarquia Rivera area after 400 kilos of avocados were taken from a nearby farm and the get-away vehicle was discovered.

Police believe most of the fruit was sold from the boot of the car in an Algarroba market.
