Hive pilferer still at large, but may already bee feeling stings of justice, many regrets

FOYIL - Officials say seven beehives containing more than 400,000 bees have been swiped from a northern Oklahoma apiary.

Beekeeper Bob Martin said he notified the Rogers County Sheriff last week of the apparent theft. The bees are worth about $2,500 to $3,000.

Martin is a beekeeper with weBEEjammin Honey BEEs in Foyil, about 30 miles northeast of Tulsa. He said the thief was likely inexperienced with bees, noting that a blanket used to cover the bees was left behind and the culprit was likely stung several times during the heist.
