Stop Stealing Pecans

CORDELE, Ga. (AP) _ A Georgia sheriff is warning people who steal pecans that they could end up in jail.

Crisp County Sheriff Donnie Haralson says authorities have made several arrests in the county this fall.

Despite the drought, this year's pecan crop is good. Haralson says people are stopping on the side of the road and picking up 20 to 30 pounds of nuts at a time from beneath pecan trees.

The sheriff says anyone caught with more than $500 worth of nuts could face felony theft charges if the landowner wants to prosecute.
