Stolen Almonds Recovered from San Leandro Warehouse

A trailer containing 44,000 pounds of stolen almonds was recovered from a San Leandro warehouse on Friday, October 27, 2006. According to the Fresno Bee, "The nut thieves hit Fresno County the night of Oct. 1, stealing a semi-truck carrying a container of almonds from the Devine Intermodal yard...The truck was attached to a 40-foot container filled with 44,000 pounds of blanched, sliced and diced almonds packed by Campos Brothers in Caruthers."

The almonds, which were ready to be shipped to Spain, were worth an estimated $135,000. Authorities were alerted to the stolen almonds when the person storing the almonds shopped them around and the almond board was contacted. No arrests have been made in the case.
