DETROIT (AP) — A "well-organized machine" of thieves appears to be behind the theft of tons of apples and pumpkins from orchards and farms in Michigan and Indiana, according to authorities.

An estimated 7,000 pounds of apples were discovered missing Oct. 10 from Spicer Orchards in Fenton, Michigan. During the same week, 1,000 pumpkins were pilfered from McCallum's Orchard in Jeddo, about 15 miles north of Port Huron. There were also 50,000 apples reportedly stolen from Williams Orchard in LaPorte County, Indiana, just one mile south of the state line.
