The avocados were stolen from 20 trees that were growing on a property in South Australia, reported Australia news outlet, SBS news.
The avocado heist is believed to have happened some time between Aug 24 and Sept 4.
According to the Police, the total weight of the avocados amounted to a whopping 1,500kg, that is heavier than a 2014 model 1.5 litre Honda Jazz.
While no value was given to the total values of avocados stolen, Singapore FairPrice sells one avocado for $1.50.
If one average size avocado weighs about 150g, it means that somewhere in southern Australia, some thieves are potentially holding on to about 10,000 stolen avocados.
This is not the first time though that such a large amount of avocados were hijacked, last August, 1,000 avocados were stolen from a farm in New Zealand
Leading police there to warn New Zealanders of "suspicious avocado selling activity", reported 3 News.
