SEDALIA, Mo. — A suspected shoplifter caused quite a buzz when he used honeybees to extricate himself from a sticky situation at a local K-Mart store.

Security personnel followed a shoplifting suspect into a bathroom. But when they opened the restroom door, they were overcome with about 100 buzzing bees.

“He probably started yelling ‘Bees! Bees,’ then created this big diversion and got away,” said Commander John DeGonia, of the Sedalia Police Department. “He must have walked into the store with them in a jar or a container.”

Store employees used bug spray to contain the bees. But the thief got away with about $60 worth of CDs, perfume, batteries and a pair of scissors.
