Most often, the items stolen are those that can be quickly turned over for cash. Sometimes, though, what they steal makes no sense at all...at least for the thieves!
Still, for someone that knows the true value, this was a good score!
Beehive stolen from outside Houston restaurantPosted: Mar 13, 2012 12:54 PM CDT Updated: Mar 13, 2012 1:15 PM CDT

HOUSTON (AP) - Some thieves might truly have sticky fingers after a 500-pound beehive was swiped from a garden outside a Houston restaurant.
Houston police spokesman Victor Senties said Tuesday that nobody has been arrested.
Surveillance security video shows a truck pulling up before dawn Saturday near the Haven Restaurant. Authorities believe at least two people loaded the box-style hive into the vehicle and drove away.
Chef Randy Evans says the thieves apparently knew what they were doing by taking the hive during rainy, chilly weather. He says bees are usually inactive during such conditions.
Evans says about 5,000 bees lived in the hive, worth an estimated $1,000. Honey made by the bees is used in some restaurant dishes, plus the insects help pollinate the garden.
One more example of what we can always look forward to in the sewer we call Houston! Someday...someday!
Coffee outside on the patio this morning! All I have to offer on the side is a few cookies, if that's OK?
