ESCALON (CBS13) – Investigators have recovered thousands of pounds of stolen walnuts in what became the area’s largest walnut heist.

A San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson won’t say where they found the walnuts, which are valued at nearly $400,000.

Deputies say the criminals used trailers to haul 140,000 pounds of walnuts from an Escalon Orchard last week.

No arrests have been made at this time.
