LOS MOLINOS, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the theft 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 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 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.
