Mexico City - A bold truck-jacking in Mexico has yielded thieves ... peanuts.

Federal police say two suspects hijacked a truck containing 17 tons of peanuts at gunpoint on the outskirts of Mexico City.

Police say the truck was listing to one side and they decided to pull it over, only to see a struggle taking place in the truck's cab.

The driver said he was forced at gunpoint to lie on floor of the cab but was able to call for help when police pulled the hijacked truck over on Thursday.

A police statement said the two suspects were arrested and ended up empty-handed.
