Letters: Apple thieves abound

Apple tree owner is tired of people stealing apples off her tree

To the person who has helped themselves to all the apples at my home on Gillespie Road yet again this year.

I hope you choke on them. I haven’t been pruning, spraying, fertilizing and watering them for your benefit.

Although you may think it’s a lark, it actually is trespassing on private property and theft. Video surveillance is very cheap now and be warned that next year when I find out who you are (and I will) that I will be prosecuting you to the full extent of the law.

You must be the two-footed type of thief because you were far too tidy – and left only the worst apples behind.
