Dozens of beehives stolen from Cromwell property

Cromwell Police are appealing for the public's help following a beehive heist at a Mount Pisa property.


The burglary is understood to have occurred this week, sometime between Monday night and Tuesday morning.



Police did not confirm how many hives were stolen, but a spokesperson said it was in the dozens, a volume that would have required a large vehicle, ute or trailer to remove.


People can report information to police by calling 105, or online via its 105 police non-emergency page and clicking 'Update Report' using the reference file number: 240305/2110.



Alternatively, you can report information anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.


Police also appealed to the public earlier today following two assaults in Cromwell over recent days.



The first incident was reported to police at about 11.45pm on Thursday, February 29, following an alleged assault on the corner of Inniscort St and Monaghan St.


Sergeant Regan Price said one person was taken to hospital.


Another alleged assault on the corner of Melmore Tce and Achil St was reported to police at about 2am on Sunday, March 3.


One person received medical attention by an ambulance crew at the scene.


Sgt Price said police would like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed either of the assaults, or who may have CCTV or dash cam footage of the incidents.


People can report information to police by calling 105 or online via its 105 police non-emergency page using 'Update Report' using the reference file number: 240302/0459.
