Man arrested for allegedly stealing 21 tons of pistachios

 / CBS NEWS

Tulare County, California — A routine audit by a Central California pistachio producer earlier this month revealed that a whopping 21 tons — 42,00 pounds of the nuts were missing.

Officials said leads in Fresno and in Kern County helped detectives discover that the tractor trailer with the nuts inside had been moved from a Montemayor Trucking lot to an area nearby.

Detectives said pistachios from one-ton — 2,000 pound sacks were being put into smaller bags for resale.

Authorities said the pistachios still in the tractor-trailer were returned to Touchstone.
