Unfortunately, in some industries, these thefts are not one-off occurrences. For the past five years, the agriculture community in California’s Central Valley has struggled with continuous nut heists plaguing the industry. According to CargoNet, a network of cargo shipping firms and law enforcement with a common goal of preventing losses, over the past four years, $7.6 million dollars worth of nuts have been stolen. In 2015 alone, 31 reported cases of nut thievery resulted in a total loss of $4.6 million.
Such a strange world. On the other hand, “nut heist” is a joyous phrase.
