Just four oranges, but still it's theft

About 7:45 p.m. Monday, Ardyn Miller drove his gold Saturn station wagon to the edge of the Tall Timber Cattle and Grove LLC and struck produce pay dirt: fresh oranges. Miller, 51, said he has helped himself to roadside produce since he was a child, according to a report from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, and didn't think twice about snagging four oranges and throwing them into a bushel. But the orange grove's owner spotted him and called deputies, who arrested Miller on a charge of farm theft. Miller, of 27305 Holiday Drive in Dade City, was booked into the Land O'Lakes jail. He was released an hour later on his own recognizance.
