The Nut Job: Central California Sees Rise In Walnut Heists

Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Audie Cornish talks to reporter Rich Paloma of The Oakdale Leader about a brazen crime wave in California farm country. It's the latest in a series of walnut thefts and the largest yet. Thieves made off with more than 140,000 pounds of walnuts from Gold River Orchard. That works out to about $400,000 worth of walnuts were stolen from the Escalon farm, and the San Joaquin Farm Bureau Federation says crimes like these are on the upswing. It's one of the largest nut thefts in recent memory.
