This crime is nuts!

Authorities in central California have busted two men on suspicion of stealing more than $400,000 worth of walnuts.

Nut crimes are up, as the crops have increased in value.

Growers and processors formed a taskforce last fall to take a crack a protecting their nuts.

The Stockton Record reports the suspects (Pedro Becerra and Mario Oheda) face a number of charges related to the walnut caper, including conspiracy.

Investigators believe the two men stole double semi-truck trailers containing more than 140,000 pounds of walnuts.
