Aurora business hopes to identify alleged thief before going to cops

Owner wants to talk with alleged thief before reporting theft

(AURORA, Ind.) -- Busse's Fruit and Vegetable Farm prides themselves on selling produce on the honor system.

They are located on State Road 48 between Aurora and Manchester.

Owner Wayne Busse says a woman has been stealing produce from them.

"We really hate to do this but can anyone identify this woman? She’s been stealing from our farm stand consistently for a few weeks now. Our family works too hard to let this continue to slide," Wayne said.

The Busse's are hoping to speak with the woman before turning surveillance video over to law enforcement.

"Wayne would like to personally speak to her before he turns in all of the video footage to the local authorities," the farm posted.

They believe she lives in the Manchester area. The farm says she has someone driving her that operates a 4-door Ford Focus hatchback with no hubcaps. We have pictures of the car below this article.

"We appreciate everyone else’s honesty and know that running our farm stand wouldn’t be possible if we didn’t live in an area with such trust worthy and respectful people," Wayne said.
