FROSTPROOF, Fla. (AP) - Authorities in a central Florida county are looking for a thief who stole more than 400 newly-planted orange trees from a grove.

Orlando television station WFTV (https://at.wftv.com/2g2lmJ8 ) reported Monday that Polk County Sheriff’s Office deputies were investigating the disappearance of the trees from a grove in Frostproof, Florida sometime last week.

The trees were valued at $3,000.

The trees were planted to replace others that had died.
