Talk about your daring robberies. Unidentified thieves backed up their pickup truck to Haven Restaurant in Houston before dawn on March 10 and took off with a 500-pound beehive.
Co-owner and executive chef Randy Evans said the hive, which was worth about $1,000, held as many as 5,000 bees. He raises them to use their honey in his restaurant. Evans also grows his own fruit and vegetables in the small plot behind his establishment.
In addition to providing honey, the bees help pollinate the restaurant's lemon trees.
