Authorities announced Monday the arrests of a warehouse operator and a suspected accomplice they believe are involved in the thefts of almonds and walnuts from growers in the Central Valley over the past 18 months.
About $400,000 worth of stolen nuts was recovered Sunday night from the two suspects. The edible goods apparently were headed for India, China, Canada and other destinations in Europe and the United States, police said.
