Roadside fruit stands are all over West Michigan.  They are a staple of summer.  Just a few bucks gets you some fresh, great-tasting produce.  Sadly, not everyone is paying.

The fruit stands are often left unattended and run on the honor system, but not everyone follows the honor system.  Some people have been stealing from a Hudsonville grower and he's fighting back.

The honor system doesn't always work.  It's nothing new.  How many people conveniently forget to pay their sales tax on internet purchases or magically shave a stroke off of their score on a tough par 5?

Running off without paying for produce falls into the same category.  It has happened for years.  Even the Hobbits did it.  But one West Michigan grower is warning potential thieves...he is watching.
