Missing bees

WILLMAR -- Willmar Police received a call Sunday from a resident in the 500 block of Ninth Street Southwest of thousands of bees in the resident's yard. Police Sgt. Michael Markkanen said the bees may be owned by resident in the 1000 block of 16th Street Southwest who reported missing bees June 16. Markkanen notified the owner to investigate whether the bees were the missing bees.

Markkanen said the owner went to investigate. However, a number of other people had showed up as well to photograph the bees, which caused the bees to fly away. The swarm was last seen heading east past Garfield School.

Markkanen is requesting the public's assistance in locating the swarm. He asks the public to notify police at 214-6700 if the swarm is located, but to leave the bees alone so they don't fly away again.
