A beekeeper from Gloucestershire is offering a reward of £2000 for the return of honey taken by thieves from his farm.
Seven pallets, each containing 40 tubs of honey, were taken from two barns on the premises in Shurdington between 4.30pm on Friday December 20 and 8am on Saturday December 21.
I breed and sell bees and my wife deals with the honey side of it. We supply shops all over the place. This was a very bad year for honey production which is why this store of honey was so important – it’s been hard to produce a cupful of honey this year.
There’s no tomorrow for me. When the few jars I’ve got left are gone that’s it. This honey is worth tens of thousands to me – my livelihood is over.
I just hope anyone who knows where this honey is comes forward. The honey is all I care about so if you have this honey and will sell it back to me I’ll give you £2000.
Anyone with information should call 101, quoting incident 119 of December 21.
Alternatively information can also be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org. In some cases Crimestoppers offer rewards of up to £1000 where information leads to a conviction.
