Houston police search for beehive thievesChef Randy Evans of Haven (Chronicle file)Police continue their search for suspects who stole a 3-foot-tall active beehive from a Houston restaurant.KHOU and KTRK reported on the incident, which took place over the weekend at Haven, located off Kirby.Security cameras revealed the thieves toting away the hive from behind the restaurant early Saturday morning.The structure houses about 5,000 bees and is worth $1,000, according to Haven’s chef, Randy Evans.Evans’ farm-to-table restaurant relies on local ingredients and uses the beehive to pollinate plants and produce honey.He told KHOU he believes the bandits knew what they were doing.“”You’re not going to just pull up to a bee hive and move it. They came in at night, when it was cold and wet. Bees are the most docile at that time. They’re going to stay huddled up in their hive, on top of one another, creating heat to stay warm and stay dry,” he said.

That is horrible. Especially horrible considering the restaurant is putting forth an honest product. I hope the hive rebels
