Bee Boxes Stolen In Tickfaw, Hammond

Obama Administration Announces New Measures To Protect Bee Populations

Tangipahoa Parish authorities are working to track down those responsible for the reported theft of bee boxes in recent days.

Our news partner WVUE/FOX 8 reports five of them were reportedly stolen April 6th from a residence in Tickfaw while six bee boxes and a swarm box went missing from outside a home in Hammond earlier this week.

The owners derive income from the honey harvested from the boxes, and those who stole them will face felony theft charges.
