Sioux City Police are following leads to find whoever destroyed a local beekeeper’s hives and equipment on the city’s westside Thursday.

Englehardt says hundreds of thousands of bees died from the cold and only one thing was stolen:

OC……..would have had footage. :21

Justin Englehardt says police are actively investigating the crime:

OC……….their professionalism. ;16

Englehardt says with this kind of loss, the future of Wild Hill Honey is uncertain.

He and his wife also work as building contractors, so do have another source of income.

OC………by the generosity. :22
