80,000 Pounds of Walnuts Stolen

Authorities are investigating two thefts of more than 80,000 pounds of walnuts from Northern California valued at about $300,000.

The Tehama County Sheriff's Office received a call from a freight brokerage firm on Friday reporting that a 40,000-pound truckload of walnuts never arrived in Miami as they were supposed to.

Authorities believe the culprit is the same person who also picked up another load of walnuts (each load weighing 40,000 pounds) days earlier from Los Molinos. Those walnuts were intended for Texas, but also disappeared.

Deputies tell the Record Searchlight of Redding the man who picked those walnuts up was not the person hired for the job. They have not identified the suspect although they do have a suspect description.

Friend of mine owns a trucking company that hauls booze. That is a pretty expensive truck. When a truck goes missing the seach the airport parking lots along they way. Most truckers would call home, find a problem, pull into the local airport and fly home.

Now days they have GPS and they track them and generally find them at airports.

I love walnuts - but it wasn’t me. I have an alibi.

By the way, does anyone have a toothpick?
