Two gigantic truck-loads of walnuts totally 40,000 lbs have been stolen recently in Tehama County, California, apparently by the same extremely tall Russian-accented fellow. The total value of the walnuts is said to be in the $300,000 range. The walnut thief's MO is to drive up to a depot with the correct shipping numbers, have the nuts loaded up, and then disappear. From a Record Searchlight staff report:
Employees told sheriff's deputies that the driver of a white semi with a Russian accent picked up the load on Oct. 19. The walnuts were purchased by F.C. Bloxom and Co., a Seattle-based company, and to be delivered to Miami.
While investigating the strange report, deputies found out a man who matched the description of that delivery driver had picked up an order of 40,000 walnuts from Los Molinos on Oct. 23 that were supposed to be taken to Texas, deputies said.
Deputies checked with the trucking company hired by San Antonio-based Hill Country Bakery and revealed that the man who took the walnuts wasn't actually the one hired for the job, deputies said.
