    Looks like the local and federal agents have uncovered who has been stealing hives in California.

    An FBI spokeswoman would not confirm or deny an investigation. Messages left at phone numbers for Tveretinov were not returned Monday
    They arent or can't say..on national security grounds. In other words, that's none of our beeswax and inapropolis to talk about the ongoing investigation, as there are six sides to every story but it's doubtful he acted alone and they're combing all the records to see if he had some workers helping him out. This may have been a perfect place to use drone reconnaissance to track where the hives went. Officially, investigators are being mum, but the anonymous buzz out of the prosecutor's office said it was "a honey of a sting operation" culminating with federal agents swarming the site, with another unofficial spokesperson saying it was a super effort by a cluster of agents and investigators..
    I'm glad they finally smoked the culprits out and this same cell of thieves mite have carried out a lot more crimes.
    (ok, I'll stop now...... )
