Monday, 28 October 2013
Not so bumbling thieves: The hives were stolen between Tuesday and Wednesday last week
STICKY-FINGERED thieves left one beekeeper feeling the sting after they stole two hives from an allotment in Burnt Oak last week.
Police are appealing for witnesses after the bee-nappers removed the two hives, which contained Queen European Honey Bees, from Montrose Avenue Allotments in Montrose Park between the evening of Tuesday October 22 and 3pm the following Wednesday.
Police Constable Nick George from Barnet Police said: “This is an unusual item to be stolen and the victim is very upset. Anyone seen moving the beehives would have raised attention.
“I would like to speak to anyone who has information on this theft to email me on Nicholas.George@met.police.uk or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
