HONOLULU (AP) – Police in Hawaii are investigating the theft of fruit valued at about $1,000 including durian, which is known for its powerful odor. The Hawaii Police Department says two men entered a property in Hilo on the Big Island and removed 18 durian and other types of fruit Feb. 1. Authorities released a surveillance image of two suspects and asked the public for additional information that could lead to the capture of the fruit bandits. The spiky durian is known for a sweet taste but a smell that has been compared to moldy cheese, rotten onions, dead fish, and far worse.
