How Rude!

We planted an apple tree in our side yard in 2005. It's pretty small and this year was the first year we finally got apples. About a month ago we had about 40 or so apples. Then one day we were down to about 20 apples. I figured that maybe it was squirrels or something like that took our apples. After all we have a 4ft chainlink fence. Then last Thursday some time between noon and 3:30PM someone stole the remaining apples. Yes, that's right someone hopped the fence in broad daylight and took 20 under ripe apples. They were small and very sour. We saw footprints on the grass leading from the street, over the fence and to our tree. We figure it was neighborhood kids that took them. Xavier is so sad now because we won't be able to eat any apples. So we're thinking next year we'll put up a motion sensor camera pointing at the tree and catch the person that stole them. I mean I could have called the cops but what are they going to do? They would probably just laugh at me. But theft is theft right? Luckily they didn't go farther into our backyard to steal our tomatoes or our very tiny melon.
