Stolen bee pollen returned

More than 200 pounds of unprocessed bee pollen has been returned by someone who heard about the heist on the news.

Stolen bee pollen has been returned to Fredrich’s Honey farm.

Nanaimo police continue to search for the thief involved in a bee-pollen heist in late September, but say at least half the stock has been returned.

Almost 225 kilograms of unprocessed bee pollen was stolen from an outbuilding on Fredrich’s Honey farm between Sept. 28 and 29. On Friday, someone who heard about the theft on the news returned close to 112 kg of the pollen.

Police are not saying how the person came into possession of the stolen pollen because of an ongoing investigation, but say the individual is not the thief and no charges are expected to be laid.
