The produce section of a Wanaka supermarket featured something a little more fruity than normal after someone planted a vibrator among the parsnips.

In the latest Crimeline newsletter, Senior Constable Ian Henderson, of Wanaka, makes note of the usual run-of-the-mill disputes, break-ins and warnings, but one particular incident featured a request for the perpetrator to own up to their act of vege vandalism.

The newsletter says: "On 3 February an older male placed a vibrator in a display of parsnips in the New World Supermarket. That person will soon be identified from the in-store video footage and is advised to own up to this offensive behaviour."
