When was the last time you saw a 150 pound watermelon?
NEVER! That's how rare they are, and that's why the one that was stolen from prize-winning Maryland gardener Bradley Northcote was valued at $1,500!!
Why would anyone ever want to steal something like that, other than to eat it? It's not like you can sell it for the $1,500 — it's a giant watermelon. Someone will notice!
The delicious heist happened after 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, and was removed from Northcote's 4.5 acre yard in Street, Md. You bet your asses the cops are now involved!
Here's what the cops said:
"It appeared that suspects cut the vine and removed it. [It's] 3 and a half feet long and would need at least two people to move it."
Bradley is no stranger to giant fruits, either. In 2010 he won first prize in the state fair in the "watermelons over 35 pounds division" for a 134.5 pounder. Here's what Bradley had to say:
“I’m just amazed at the effort someone went to in order to steal a watermelon. You really need a strategy for a theft like this; not just because of the size, but it was located on the most inaccessible part of the property."
In other words he's impressed and hopes you enjoy it, thieves!
