Thieves steal from foreign apple orchard workers

CORNWALL — Criminals broke into the building that houses foreign workers at Sunrise Orchards in Cornwall this past Friday and stole passports, among other things.

Owners of the orchard said that the break-in at the North Bingham Street home occurred between 1 and 4 p.m. on Jan. 27.

Residents of the house include six people who prune apple trees at the orchard and work in the nearby apple packing facility. They returned to their home on Friday to find that personal belongs, valuables and passports had been stolen, according to Sunrise Orchards co-owner Christine Hodges.

Anyone who saw cars leaving or entering the property or suspicious activity there, or who has other information on this break-in, is asked to contact Trooper Taylor Demick at the New Haven barracks at  802-388-4919.
