Police seek help after nut theft, post mug shot of squirrel

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Police in suburban Detroit are having a little fun while asking for help from the public in figuring out who swiped roughly 28,000 pounds of packaged nuts.

The Shelby Township Police Department says a truck and trailer packed with 18 pallets of walnuts and other snack nuts were taken the weekend of June 27. Police say the truck and trailer were found July 1 in Detroit, but the nuts worth more than $128,000 were gone.

The department on Tuesday issued an appeal for information on its Facebook page – posting a mug shot of a squirrel along with details of the case.

Police in the Macomb County community have had a few noteworthy animal encounters recently, rounding up a goat in a parking lot and capturing a stray pig.
