BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - The owners of a bee farm are offering a $1,000 reward in an effort to recover about 5,000 pounds of honey stolen from their property in Opportunity.

The Montana Standard reports (https://bit.ly/1LVo3Yh ) Tuesday and Scott Clark, the owners of Sheridan-based Clark Honey, estimate that 200 boxes of honey were stolen sometime between Sept. 1 and Sept. 2.

Scott Clark says he’s not sure if the queen bee was taken during the theft. If so, the entire hive’s brood of baby bees and larvae is dead.

Tuesday Clark says the theft required a flatbed truck or trailer plus equipment to transport the boxes from the bee yard full of a hive of bees.

The Clarks are offering a $1,000 reward leading to a conviction or recovery of the stolen honey.
