Imagine the confusion that cops must have felt when they received the call about stolen nuts. 42,000 pounds of stolen nuts. 

Employees of Touchstone Pistachio company noticed 21 tons missing from their inventory and called to report the crime. Detectives were able to trace the theft back to 34-year-old trucker Alberto Montemayor, who has since been arrested. 

In a Facebook post, authorities detailed the odd scheme. Apparently, a pistachio-filled tractor-trailer was moved to a different location and the nuts were then being sorted into smaller bags. The plan was to resell them, officials say. Authorities say the pistachios were valued at over $100,000. 

“I guess you really ‘cracked’ this case,” one person said  on the social media post. “Guy must’ve been ‘nuts’ to think he could get away with it.” 

Montemayor could face surprisingly serious consequences for a case of stolen nuts.

Are you making this 401(k) investment mistake?

If you see an unclaimed $5 on the ground, you pick it up, right? Maybe you look around first to see who’s paying attention, but you still grab the cash and claim it as your own.

And yet, according to a new Vanguard report, claiming free money is something many 401(k) investors are failing to do. 

In fact, the report found that 34% of 401(k) investors are missing out on this free money

California’s severe drought may have just helped solve a decades old mystery of a missing plane. 

Due to lake levels hitting historic lows because of the abnormally dry conditions, what appears to be the wreckage of a plane was uncovered last week. In 1965, two planes collided mid-air over Lake Folsom, with one of the planes crashing into the lake with four people on board. 

Only one body was recovered and the plane was never found. Authorities conducted two extensive searches, one in 1965 and one in 2014, with both being unsuccessful. Now with the help of the severe drought, the wreckage has finally been located. Who found it and will authorities attempt to recover the plane?
