He suspected someone was sneaking on to the property to steal avocados, so he set up game security cameras to catch the avocado thief in the act.


Medrano was spotted driving near the gates, but when he saw law enforcement, quickly turned around. His vehicle was found nearby, but he fled. Eventually, deputies said they discovered Medrano hiding in a bush.
