BRISTOL, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Police say thieves have made off with hundreds of ears of corn from a farm in Connecticut.
Workers at Green Acres Farm in Bristol went to pick corn to sell at a market Sunday and discovered that the stalks had been all but picked clean.
Sales manager Whit Betts estimates thieves took a few hundred ears of corn at a value of $1,200. He says only underdeveloped ears were left behind and that those are too small to sell.
Betts said it looked like a professional job.
